Limit bandwidth for wired clients

Dear Community,

 

 

How can I limit bandwidth to 5Mb/5Mb per each connected client over wired cable for a specific vlan?

 

For wireless clients there's a manner doing so by going to Wireless -> Configure -> Firewall & traffic shaping -> Traffic shaping rules -> Per-client bandwidth limit ->  Set desired values ... 

 

For wired clients I can't find where to configure. 

 

 

Best regards,.

Re: Limit bandwidth for wired clients

Huh... OK, I'm not really clear from the docs if this will do what you want...

 

My example above stands for per-client rate limiting on a VLAN, but to aggregate the entire VLAN into one maximum... I would try this under Security & SD-WAN > SD-WAN & Traffic shaping:

The doc here:

 

https://documentation.meraki.com/MR/Firewall_and_Traffic_Shaping/Traffic_Shaping_a_Local_Subnet_or_H...

 

Seems to indicate that this would provide per-VLAN rate limiting.. But I can't say I've ever tried this. We just limit per-client using the method I posted above. 

 

Maybe someone else can confirm or deny if the Traffic Shaping policy works?

That can't be done on the wired side unless you have a MX to do this in the SD-WAN and traffic shaping.

Hi,

 

I do have. 

Can you please share instructions as per my specific needs?

Hi @Captain 

 

You can do this by applying a GP to a VLAN on an MX network.

 

Created your GP under Network wide > Group policies with a rate limiter:

And then you can apply the GP to a VLAN under Security & SD-WAN > Addressing & VLANs:

Re: Limit bandwidth for wired clients

Okay.

 

Sorry this is not clear:

 

The limit set in Bandwidth -> use custom bandwidth limit

 Is applied per entire vlan ?

 or

 Per each client connected in that vlan?

 

To me it seems like it is per entire vlan... I am looking for how to limit per client in a vlan.

 

Let's say I have a vlan called "wiredGuests" with vlan id 100 or whatever... 

I would like to limit that entire vlan to 10/10 Mb 

 and for each client within that vlan wired connected - as well limit to 1/1 Mb 

 

 

Best regards

Re: Limit bandwidth for wired clients

@Captain The method I presented will limit each client on that VLAN to 5Mbps (both up and down). It will not limit the entire VLAN to 5Mbps.

 

I think that's what you want?

OK, sorry, that's a bit different. the VLAN to 10/10 with clients to 1/1 wasn't in your original post. That can be done, one second...

Thanks @jdsilva for the assistance. I got busy with a switch here and couldn't get to @Captain
