Before specifying bandwidth settings in policies, verify the default bandwidth thresholds that trigger bandwidth-based enforcement:
*
*
Default bandwidth values are stored by Policy Server, and enforced by all associated instances of Network Agent.
To change the default bandwidth values:
1.
In the Forcepoint Security Manager, go to the Web > Settings > General > Filtering page.
2.
*
When a category or protocol is blocked based on traffic for the entire network, Default bandwidth for network defines the default threshold.
*
When a category or protocol is blocked based on traffic for the protocol, the Default bandwidth per protocol defines the default threshold.
You can override the default threshold values for each category or protocol in any category or protocol filter.
3.
When you are finished, click OK to cache your changes. Changes are not implemented until you click Save and Deploy.
Any changes to the defaults have the potential to affect any category and protocol filters that enforce Bandwidth Optimizer restrictions.

When you filter categories based on HTTP bandwidth usage, web protection software measures total HTTP bandwidth usage over all ports specified as HTTP ports for web protection software.
