QoS/Rate Limiting on the ASA

Is it possible to rate limit, or police, the bandwidth for some users while not for other users? Can this be done based on the type of traffic? Source/destination?

Re: QoS/Rate Limiting on the ASA

there is something called Traffic shaping that might help you with what you are trying to do. here is a link

In the class map you will define the source IP that way you will be able to say which IP will be part of the policy.

Re: QoS/Rate Limiting on the ASA

you need to use acl to define the traffic.

example :

Limiting the bandwidth to 1 mbps


class-map QOS_IT

match access-list OUTSIDE_mpc_in_V1

class-map QOS_IT_IN

match access-list inside_mpc_in_V1

policy-map my_policy

class QOS_IT_IN

police output 1000000

policy-map my_policy_1

class QOS_IT

police input 1000000

service-policy my_policy interface inside

service-policy my_policy_1 interface outside


Qos Over Vpn


access-list 101 extended permit tcp any any eq telnet

class-map tcp_traffic

match access-list 101


policy-map tcp_policy

class tcp_traffic



service-policy tcp_policy interface outside

service-policy tcp_policy interface inside


priority-queue inside

priority-queue outside

when you create the priority queue on the inside and on the outside

interfaces, the packet will be put into the priority queue from the inside

interface, and transfered along to the outside interface queue with the same

priority (after encryption).

Thanks. But, in this situation, VPN users are not an issue. We just want to police certain users, not others as they surf the internet.

Re: QoS/Rate Limiting on the ASA

i just gave an example for other ppl in forum who MIGHT need vpn traffic to be policed.

just use the acl to define the traffic and u should be good.
