Re: Simple BWM questions

said by dnoyeB:

1. Egress bandwidth set on WAN interface.

quote:
Egress Bandwidth
Enter the maximum amount of traffic, in kilobits per second, the ZyWALL can send through the interface to the network. Allowed values are 0 - 1048576.

said by dnoyeB:

2. Policy 'inbound' maximum bandwidth.
3. Policy 'outbound' maximum bandwidth.
Also, why should there be different maximum bandwidth for each policy? Is this an 'upto' limit for the given policy!?

quote:
Maximum Bandwidth
Specify the maximum bandwidth (from 1 to 1048576) allowed for the route in kbps. If you enter 0 here, there is no bandwidth limitation for the route.
If the sum of the bandwidths for routes using the same next hop is higher than the actual transmission speed, lower priority traffic may not be sent if higher priority traffic uses all of the actual bandwidth.
To reserve bandwidth for traffic that does not match any of the policy routes, leave some of the interface’s bandwidth unbudgeted and do not enable Maximize Bandwidth Usage.
