Bandwidth Contracts are applied to Roles

Bandwidth contracts are applied to roles, not individual ports (you can apply bandwidth contracts to ports, but they limit broadcast and multicast traffic, not user traffic). The flexibility of this is that you can have 3 different wired users passing traffic through a physical wired port, but then based on their login (and role assigned to that login), you can assign a bandwidth contract.

To apply a contract, you go to configuration> security> access control. Click on edit next to the role that you want to apply the bandwidth contract to. Scroll down to the Bandwidth Contract Session. Click on the dropdown to either select a bandwidth contract or add new one.

Now in doing that, you can vary the bandwidth contract restrictions for different types of user traffic through that port, through authentication.

Bandwidth for Individual Applications

At this time, bandwidth restrictions are only applied to the user role, not the application.
