Information About Bi-Directional Rate Limiting with AAA Override
When a wireless client joins an access point, certain QoS policies get enforced on the access point. One such feature is the rate limiting for both upstream and downstream traffic at AP. The rate limiting feature when clubbed with AAA override supports specific set of policies based on the time of day and day of week. The AAA override then applies these policies coming from a RADIUS server to the access point.
Let’s consider a use case of time of the day in conjunction with user role. Usually, the user role is used as an extra matching criteria along with the time of day. You can club the time of day usage with any matching criteria to get the desired result. The matching will be performed when the client joins the controller.
You can configure policies as two separate components:
Defining policy attributes as service templates that are specific to clients joining the network and applying policy match criteria.
Applying match criteria to the policy.
To configure Bi-Directional rate limiting, perform the following:
Create a class map.
You can apply a service template using either a class map or parameter map.
Create a policy map.
Create a service template.
If class-map has to be used, associate the class-map to the policy-map and associate the service-template to the class-map.
Associate the policy-map to the policy profile.
