Bandwidth Contract on Controller Switchport.

Is there a way to place a Bandwidth Contract on a Controller Switchport? I am needing a way to restrict trafic to test a few wired solutions. 

 

I know I can place this on users but I want to controle it at the switchport. 

 

Thanks.

I havent tested it yet, but it might works.

- Assign VLAN to the port

- Make the port untrusted

- Open VLAN config

- select wired-aaa profile to whatever you need

 

For the aaa profile, check the initial and authenticate role, assign the correct bandwith contract

 

Goodluck.!

Actually, you can do it right from the vlan config. Thanks for the help!!

Putting a bandwidth contract on a VLAN only restricts the bandwidth of multicast/broadcast traffic on that VLAN....

Strange. because it is throttling the device I have on that vlan.  Hmm. maybe it only appears to be doing what I need. Let me test a little more.

Okay.  If you have a wired user on an untrusted port, you can assign a bandwidth contract to that wired user through a role.  When you apply a bandwidth contract to a VLAN however:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_61/ArubaOS_61_UG/Network_Parameters.php?search_name=bandwidth%20contract#XREF_31238_Configuring_VLANs

 

"Bandwidth contracts on a VLAN can limit broadcast and multicast traffic."

Re: Bandwidth Contract on Controller Switchport.

Dear Sir,

 

You mean we have to apply the bandwidth contract after check which role is better.

 

For example in mac based authentication profile.. initial role is logon. after the client being autheniticated , the bandwidth contract is applied to the second role which is Mac authentication default role "guest" i have selected . Am i right ???

 

 

 

Highly oblige if you consider my question on priority  ?

Generally your initial role will be highly restrictive so a bandwidth contract will not be necessary. The guest role would be the best place assign the contract.
