Hello - what (if any) are the options for shaping traffic on an X-series firewall? I have a customer with a Gig handoff Internet circuit, currently provisioning 150-Mbps. This is terminated on an old ISR, which is shaping the traffic via "bandwidth 150000" command to prevent carrier policing. We need to move this connection off of the ISR onto a ASA 5525-X.
From what I've found so, it appears there's no way to handle traffic shaping on the X-series firewalls. (I haven't looked into the new FTD appliances yet, so would be interested in feedback on those as well.) The 5525 is currently running 9.2 code, and the 9.2 configuration guide (https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/asa92/configuration/firewall/asa-firewall-cli/conns-qos.html
) indicates that traffic shaping is only supported on the 5505 (not the "multi-core models such as 5500-X"). I haven't checked newer release notes.
Is there a way to perform the same shaping function on an ASA 5525, with either the existing or newer code? If not, how are other customers handling sub-rated circuits to prevent policing and the potential resulting connection drops? Again, if the newer FTD appliances (2100's) can provide for this, that'd be helpful to know.
