Creating Traffic Shaping, Interface VLAN based (rate limit) 

How to configure rate limit on Fortigate?

Traffic Shaping on an Interface VLAN base, can be done only via the CLI.

-          Login to the Fortigate Unit.

-          View the desired interface VLAN using the command:

show system interface <interface name>


config system interface edit <interface_name> set inbandwidth <rate_int> next end where <rate_int> is the bandwidth limit in Kb/s. Excess packets will be dropped. If inbandwidth is 0, the rate is not limited. A similar command is available that can be performed on egress as well using the CLI commands: config system interface edit <interface_name> set outbandwidth <rate_int> next end
