I need a traffic shaper for one drive traffic, i want to limit the up-link bandwidth usage for one drive when the wan up-link utilisation is high else it should take whatever available bandwidth, I have configured Per-IP traffic shaper and it is working fine based on the max bandwidth i have set. is there any way i can enhance it based on the link utilisation.?
Changing queue with DSCP marking to put "always-lower" priority on one type of traffic is one way doing traffic control. But it wouldn't provide a guaranteed bandwidth in high traffic situation because with FGT "scheduling" method until higher queues become empty lower queue packets can't go out.
In shaping-policies, you can specify applications like OneDrive (I currently see four types) and apply a set of shared-shapers (both directions) regardless the source/destination IPs, which you probably don't care much. You can set guaranteed (minimum), maximum bandwidth, and even DSCP values to control queuing if you want.
As warning in GUI says you have to have at least one application control profile applied to a policy in order to make applications in shaping-policies active.
