How to set up rate limit through EAP controller
Suitable for EAP controller 2.0.3 or higher controller 2.x version
Rate limit function on EAP is used to set a threshold for client connected to the wireless network. By doing so we can prevent client from occupy too much of the bandwidth to ensure the service level for Wi-Fi users.
The configuration is quite simple. We just need to enable rate limit and fill in a threshold.
After the configuration we can verify that the Download limit is really working.
- Rate limit, or in another words bandwidth control applies to each wireless user connected to the SSID.
- For most of the application most of the data flow is from server to client so we just need to set download limit in most of the cases.
- Rate limit will consume CPU resource of the EAP device thus it may decrease the total performance of the EAP device.
