NSA 6.5: bandwidth quota per IP

Hi Everyone,

Is there any way to implement a restriction on the utilization of each user via their IPs, like only 100 Mbps per user?

Some users are misusing the bandwidth, and we want to restrict that by applying a quota to the flow. I applied the below but not sure why it didn't work properly (I don't want to apply anything on the WAN interface thus I skipped that step only)

Are there any suggestions to be taken into consideration?

    Thanks for your helpful response.

    Some services, like outlook, are negatively impacted by this as it keeps being disconnected. Is there a way to improve the performance by assigning a high priority to the online mail server?

    You have either BWM option on the firewall or you can use 802.1p Quality of Service which needs to be tagged at layer 2.

    I am having difficulties applying this to Outlook only. Can you provide more details on how this could be done?

    Also, how can I prioritize the protocol SSL/TLS Protocol-7927?
