Shaper Summary

Monitoring > Bandwidth > QoS > Shaper Summary

Use this tab to view the Shaper Summary for all traffic classes on selected appliances. The Shaper delays certain packet types to optimize overall network performance. For more information about shaping, see Shaper Tab and Shaper Template.

  • Use the controls above the table to specify how much data—time and date range—you want to see in the summary.

  • Use the Top X filter to limit data according to top applications by total traffic bytes. You can include the top 10, 25, 50, 100, or 1000 applications.

  • Click Outbound or Inbound to change the summary by traffic direction.
