How do I limit RealAudio / RealVideo traffic?

Solution

Overview

PacketWise automatically classifies Real Networks streaming audio and video (in the Real service group). To prevent this type of traffic from consuming the link, you should see a rate policy and (optionally) create a partition.

Cause
Resolution

Because RealAudio and RealVideo is bursty traffic, a rate policy 0 bps guaranteed, burstable at priority 2 will keep it in check.

For stricter control, you can create a partition to limit this class to a specific bps. Guarantee 0-20% of the link and let it burst to 50-100%.

For more information about controlling streaming media, see Control Streaming Media in PacketGuide.
