Configure Bandwidth Throttling for the Transparent Router and the Proxy HA Mode

Configure bandwidth throttling using classes for the Transparent Router mode, as well as for the Proxy HA mode, by creating bandwidth classes and specifying network interfaces depending on whether a Web Gateway acts as a director or scanning node.

NOTE: IP spoofing must be disabled in the Proxies settings when configuring bandwidth throttling using classes for these network modes.

  1. Select Configuration | Appliances.
  2. On the appliances tree, select the appliance that you want to configure bandwidth throttling on, then click Bandwidth Control.
  3. Make sure that Enable bandwidth control is selected.
  4. In the Bandwidth classes list under Bandwidth Classes, create the bandwidth classes that will be used for bandwidth throttling when running Web Gateway in these network modes.
  5. In the Interface names list under Bandwidth Classes, specify the network interfaces for bandwidth throttling.
    • When configuring an appliance as an active or fail-over director node:
      1. Click the Add icon.
      2. In the Add Interfaces Name window that opens, select the name of a network interface name for inbound web traffic, for example, eth0, then click OK.
      3. In the same window, select the name of a network interface name for outbound web traffic, for example, eth1, and click OK.
      4. Click Save Changes.
    • When configuring an appliance as a scanning node:
      1. Click the Add icon.
      2. In the Add Interfaces Name window that opens, select the name of a network interface name for outbound web traffic, for example, eth1, then click OK.
      3. Click Save Changes.
