User Based Rate Limit ASA 5500

Unanswered Question
Oct 26th, 2009


I have a public wireless network behind an ASA 5510. I would like to limit the upload and download speeds of individual users on the network, rather than the entire network. I originally limited the entire network with a policy map, but I want each user to have their own separate bandwidth. On a /24 network, would I have to create a separate access-list and policy map per ip address, or is there another way?


I have this problem too.

I am afraid that is the only way if you want to do bandwidth allocation/policing.

The ASA doesn't have a feature that tracks all user connections to enforce policing on a per user basis.

Using the connection option (set connection) in MPF you can allocation maximum sessions/connection per user. But I don't think that is adequate for what you want.

Here is a link that explains policing

I hope it helps.
