estimated-downstream-bandwidth vs inbandwidth

Hi community, 

Under interface there's 2 setting where we could set the estimated bandwidth, however I am not sure sure to understand the difference and/or how they relate to each other or rest of config. 

 

config system interface
edit "my-inet-iface"
set inbandwidth <some_value_in_kbps>
set estimated-downstream-bandwidth <some_value_in_kbps>
set outbandwidth <some_value_in_kbps>
set estimated-upstream-bandwidth <some_value_in_kbps>
next
end
 
I do understand the need of those values, but I find them redundant and/or not sure how they relate to other config (QOS/SD-WAN)

Hello

inbandwidth and outbandwidth is to limit traffic at interface level. It is a kind of traffic shaping.

The estimated ones are for sdwan calculation for maximize traffic.
