I am an IT director for a small school district. We are currently upgrading our bandwidth to a 6 MBPS line and implimenting many new web applications for next year.

We use a Sonicwall Pro 3060 which is an awesome all in one security solution.

MY QUESTION: What is the best way to setup quotas so individual users dont exceed bandwidth limits that I set. Note, I need to do some detailed usage analysis before setting quotas.

    Set the quota on the router and they will not be able to exceed what you allow.
