Limiting bandwidth per user for Netflix/Hulu during times of heavy usage with MikroTik
Posted on 2012-03-12
Greetings! I am just now getting a feel for MikroTik routers and would love to test out some rules for the thing. My first inclination is to have the router throttle streaming down during peak hours, so that people who are simply browsing the web or checking email aren't being interrupted or limited because of a handful of others who are streaming constantly, but allow that streaming to use what it needs during times of inactivity.
Is this possible with Mikrotik, and if so, what would be the best way of doing this? Feel free to share your own rules for queues or mangle if you like!
I am using RouterOS 5.2 and this is the edge router that all connections inside the network move through.
