you can define a class-map per protocol and shape or police the traffic outbound.


class prot1

match protocol citrix

class prot2

match protocol http

policy-map OUT

class prot1

shape percent 10

class prot2

shape percent 15

interface serial0

service-policy output OUT

This would limit traffic to 10% and 15% of available bandwidth. In case you would like to give minimum guarantees to some traffic use "bandwidth" instead of "shape".

Hope this helps

Thanks - this looks pretty straight forward. I'll give it a try.
