Limit Different Bandwidth In Day and Night.

There are lot many ways to limit bandwidth for day and Night, but personally I found this is the easiest way, Here it is.

I have used Simple Queue, Script and Scheduler.

Suppose we have one network 192.168.1.0/24 and want to limit Bandwidth for day and Night Time.

Network 192.168.1.0/24
Bandwidth = 06:00am – 18:00pm – 1Mbps. <Max-Limit>
Bandwidth = 18:00pm – 06:00am – 2Mbps. <Max-Limit>

Create two simple queues for the same network with different Bandwidth Limit.

/queue simple
#name=”Day” target-addresses=192.168.1.0/24 dst-address=0.0.0.0/0
interface=<ether-x> parent=none direction=both priority=8 
queue=default-small/default-small limit-at=512k/512k 
max-limit=1M/1M total-queue=default-small

#name=”Night” target-addresses=192.168.1.0/24 dst-address=0.0.0.0/0
interface=<ether-x> parent=none direction=both priority=8
queue=default-small/default-small limit-at=1M/1M 
max-limit=2M/2M total-queue=default-small

Now, write scripts

/system script
#name=”Day” source=/queue simple enable Day; /queue simple disable Night

#name=”Night” source=/queue simple enable Night; /queue simple disable Day

Finally, Schedule it

/system scheduler
#name=”Day” on-event=Day policy=read,write start-date=oct/13/2007 start-time=06:00:00 interval=1d

#name=”Night” on-event=Night policy=read,write start-date=oct/13/2007 start-time=18:00:00 interval=1d
