QoS and setting it up
Posted on 2009-07-13
I am curious how exactly it is best to run QoS on a link.
The link coming in to our site is a 10meg. now I of course only have rights to set up traffic shaping / QoS on my end of the link, however the main trouble is with incomming traffic, mainly web traffic, (little out lots in).
how can I set up traffic shapeing to limit this traffic in and prevent it clogging up the link for all traffic.
Am i correct in thinking that if you set incomming shaping, beacause inbound traffic will be que by the router in its bufferes, and "good traffic" will be moved to the frount and "bad" traffic will be dropped? And this will allow incomming traffic as well as out going to be shaped?
Or do I need to have the ISP also run traffic shapeing ?
Or how else can I make sure I have control of traffic both in and out of site..
What I want to do i limit non work web browseing and insure it can only use a % of the total band with.
