Every service class definition is associated to a traffic-shaping policy, which sets parameters for traffic of the associated service class. You can create and configure traffic shaping policies for sites with special needs, but the default policy settings works fine for most installations, providing the following benefits:
A CloudBridge appliance is shipped with factory-default traffic shaping policies that span a broad range of priorities. These policies are listed in the Traffic Shaping Policies page. Apart from the Default Policy, the other factory-default policies cannot be edited or deleted. The reason is to ensure that they have the same meaning on all appliances. To make changes, create a new traffic-shaping policy with the new parameters and change the appropriate service-class definitions to refer to the new traffic-shaping policy.
To create a traffic shaping policy:
In the SD-WAN WANOP management UI, navigate to Configuration > Optimization Rules > Traffic Shaping Policies and click Add.
In the Create Traffic Shaping Policy page , enter values for the following parametetrs:
Voice Optimization cannot be configured while ICA Priorities are set.
Configuring Bandwidth Limit is applicable only for NetScaler SD-WAN WANOP edition. For NetScaler SD-WAN EE edition, the Bandwidth Limit parameter is disabled by default.
Click Add. The newly Created Traffic Shaping Policy is listed in the Traffic Shaping Policies list.
You can now associate the traffic shaping policy to a service class, for more information see Service Classes.
