Used together, client traffic classifiers and client rate classes provide client-side traffic shaping features on Windows network access client connections. You configure a client traffic classifier, which defines source and destination IP addresses or networks, and can also specify a protocol. The client traffic classifier is then associated with a client rate class, which defines base and peak rates for traffic to which it applies, and other traffic shaping features. A client traffic classifier is assigned in a network access resource.
Client rate class properties specify settings for client traffic control rates.
|Base Rate||Integer in bps, Kbps, Mbps, or Gbps||Specifies the base data rate defined for the client rate class.|
|Ceiling Rate||Integer in bps, Kbps, Mbps, or Gbps||Specifies the ceiling data rate defined for the client rate class.|
|Burst Size||Integer in bytes, Kilobytes, Megabytes, or Gigabytes||Specifies the amount of traffic that is allowed to reach the ceiling data rate defined for the client rate class.|
|Service Type||Best Effort, Controlled Load, or Guaranteed||
|Mode||Shape, Discard, or Borrow||
|DSCP||Enable/disable, integer for DSCP code||If you select Override, you can specify an optional DSCP code for the client rate class. DSCP is a way of classifying traffic for Quality of Service (QoS). Traffic is classified using six-bit values, and then routers on the network interpret the traffic priority based on their configurations and prioritize traffic for QoS accordingly.|
|Rules for Virtual Network Access Interface||Add a rule to this section to apply the traffic shaping control only to traffic on the virtual network access interface.|
|Rules for Local Physical Interfaces||Add a rule to this section to apply the traffic shaping control only to traffic on the client computer's local physical interfaces.|
|Rules for Virtual Network Access and Local Physical Interfaces||Add a rule to this section to apply the traffic shaping control to traffic on both the virtual Network Access interface and the client's local physical interfaces.|
Configure properties for the client traffic classifier to determine how traffic is classified for traffic shaping on Windows clients.
|Basic/Advanced||Basic or Advanced (list item)||Advanced allows you to configure a source address and source ports.|
|Client Rate Class||List item||A client rate class defines the client traffic shaping rates and properties for a client traffic control configuration. Because client traffic classifier entries define address pairs and protocols on which client rate classes operate, a client rate class must be created before you can use a client traffic classifier entry.|
|Protocol||UDP, TCP, or All Protocols.||The protocol to which this client traffic classifier entry applies.|
|Destination Address||Selection and manual entries||The destination address to which the client traffic classifier
|Destination Port||Number or list item||The destination port to which the client traffic classifier entry applies. You can type the port number, or select from the list of predefined application ports.|
|Source Address||Selection and manual entries||The source address to which the client traffic classifier entry
|Source Port||Number or list item||The source port to which the client traffic classifier entry applies. You can type the port number, or select from the list of predefined application ports.|
