Fairer distribution of site Internet bandwidth, via Watchguard

article #945, updated 522 days ago

What will help is a “Per IP Address” type traffic management policy, in Setup / Actions / Traffic Management in WSM, using zero for maximum, 256 for “Maximum instance” (this is the number of IP addresses according to the documentation), and most significantly a low “guaranteed bandwidth” calculated by a formula at or close to this:

(TotalInternetBandwidth รท TotalDHCPLeases) X 0.8

The static multiplier from 0.8 to 0.5 or even less depending on situation, but done properly it will keep everyone working.
