I just upgrade one of our remote sites from a 1.5MB frame relay connection to a 10MB metro connection.
They are connected to our corporate office via a Cisco 1841 Router. Even though they now have a 10MB pipe
I don't want them to be able to use that full 10MB bandwidth. The 10MB bandwidth is primarly for doing
remote backups. Is there a way I can configure QOS to throttle traffic on a time-based policy? Just slow them
down during the day for all traffic? If not mabye just setting a policy for HTTP traffic and limiting their speeds that way.

Main goal is to not let the end users eat up the whole 10MB pipe even though it is available.

Any help would be great. Thanks

If you are not experienced with QOS I would recommend using this template.

http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6136216.html

It's an excel document that lets you decide the areas, name them and input a percentage of bandwidth per area.  The example uses a Cisco 871, but you can simply take the QOS portion out of the config it creates and use it for your 1841.

Thanks for the reply. Not being very experienced with QOS it wasn't easy to use the Excel document to duplicate what I was needing.

What a lot of trial and error I figured it out just using some police maps. Thanks
