Throttle bandwidth Sonicwall NSA220

My sonicwall is connected to a 100Mbs connection in a datacenter but we are only paying for 25Mbs and get charged high prices for over 25Mbs.

How can I throttle the overall bandwidth on the sonicwall NSA220, without doing any traffic shaping or prioritizing?  I just want to set the maximum input and maximum output to 12.5Mbs each.

Hi gateguard,

The only way I know how to accomplish this is by traffic shaping via Bandwidth Management through the Egress & Ingress BWM interfaces. REF: https://www.fuzeqna.com/sonicwallkb/ext/kbdetail.aspx?kbid=6076

It will do exactly what you want it to. Why can you not do it this way...it's the preferred method?
