Bandwidth QoS per IP / Host on PIX 515e
Posted on 2011-09-04
Cisco PIX 515e URBUN
Pix version 7.1(2)
ASDM version 5.1(2)
Give IP's 10.0.0.170 through 10.0.0.180 on the inside interface as much bandwidth as they need, then let all the other hosts on the inside interface use the bandwidth remaining.
10 of our host devices on the PIX inside interface each with a static IP (10.0.0.170 - 10.0.0.180) need to have priority bandwidth over all other hosts on the inside interface of the PIX. These devices are barix exstreamer units used for downloading internet radio streams. We use these as part of our radio station downlink sources. Currently when any other host on the inside interface downloads something (i.e. a PC downloading youtube video), said download hogs the bandwidth and the barix devices almost immediately stop, waiting for available bandwidth. For obvious reasons this is not desirable during live radio broadcasting since the program audio stops and we get "dead-air". Each barix device currently consumes ~64kbps constantly.
I use ASDM to access the PIX device. I've learned that QoS / Rate Limiting is supported by our PIX device. I found a configuration screen for QoS in ASDM, but have no clue as to how to add and configure for our needs.
Please provide easy to understand steps as how to do this in ASDM. Thank you.
