I have a Meraki MX64W deployed, which is soon to be shared between two small companies, so two VLANs. There will be a 200mb internet connection.
Rather than limiting each VLAN to 100mb and potentially having unused bandwidth, can I have a policy to allow either to use all the bandwidth available, but reserve 100mb for each if both are pushing a lot of traffic through at the same time?
Similar to how vmware uses limits and reservations for VMs.
Thanks in advance.
There isn't a good way to do that. About all you can do is in traffic shaping on the security appliance is set a bandwidth limitation for the subnet.
Jeez... You can *almost* do this with Priority... but In the end it'd be a bit of a kludgey set up. You'd have to trick the MX into thinking it had a bigger pipe than it does, and get creative on the Traffic Shaping policies...
I'm not sure it would work exactly as you want either 😞
@jdsilva I agree with that. I don't think it would be very reliable. It would be helpful if the "Traffic shaping rules" also had a SpeedBurst option like the "Global bandwidth limits" offered.
