Tutorial - HP Switch Traffic Shaper
Open a browser software, enter the IP address of your Switch and access the HP Switch web interface.
On the prompt screen, enter the administrative login information.
Factory default access information:
• Username: admin
• Password: (no password)
After a successful login, the administrative menu will be displayed.
Access the QoS menu, and select the GTS option.
On the GTS screen, access the Setup tab and perform the following configuration:
• Select the desired port.
• GTS: Enable
• Match type: ANY
• CIR: Desired bandwidth in Kbits. (Not KBytes)
In our example, we wanted to limit the switch port 10 to a maximum of 50 KBytes.
Keep in mind that the system expects the bandwidth value to be presented in Kbits.
To convert a KByte value to Kbit you need to multiply the value by 8.
In our example, 50 KBytes is equal to 400 Kbits.
Don't forget to save your configuration.
Congratulations! You have successfully configured the HP Switch traffic shaping.
