With SEPM 12.1 we lost the ability to rate limit in Apache like we did in IIS. Their is a way to accomplish without using the mod_bw if your running Windows 2008 R2 (earlier versions may work) and an AD GPO.

  • Create an OU for this.
  • Create a GPO in that OU.
  • Go to Computer configuration, Policies, Windows Settings, Policy-based QoS.
  • Right click and do Create new policy.
  • I have two SEPMs so I made the following rules based on one needing 112KBps and the other 400KBps with the local network having no limits. The 192.168.0.10-11 are the SEPM IPs and 192.168.0.0/24 is the local network.
Policy Name Application Name or URL Protocol Source Port Destination Port SourceIP/Prefix Length Destination IP/ Prefix Length DSCP Value Throttle Rate
SEPM1_Nonlocal * TCP 8014 * 192.168.0.10/32 * 0 112
SEPM1_Local * TCP 8014 * 192.168.0.10/32 192.168.0.0/24 50 -1
SEPM2_NonLocal * TCP 8014 * 192.168.0.11/32 * 0 400
SEPM2_Local * TCP 8014 * 192.168.0.11/32 192.168.0.0/24 50 -1

Sorry to revive a two year old thread, but is this QoS per-connection or per-server?

Hi Brett,

 

Thanks for documenting this, works a treat. It's per connection jvermillion.

 

Iv'e used a 1mb setting which uses about 1/3 of our 15Mb link

 

Hope this bumps up the search as it took a bit of finding.
