Rate Class limits in a two node active/active cluster

On a two node active/active Stingray cluster (8.0) are rate class limits applied per traffic manager or across the cluster?

Hi Gavin,

The rate class limits are counted and applied per-Stingray-instance.  In an active/active cluster, one option would be to configure the rate limit to half the value you want; assuming even traffic distribution across the cluster, this would give you the effect you need.  If you need a very strictly-applied rate limit, you would be better to run active-passive with respect to the traffic that should be limited.

One additional observation - the bandwidth classes can be configured to operate across the cluster; in an active-active scenario, the traffic managers continually negotiate to get an appropriate share of the total bandwidth allocation.

Best regards

Hi Owen,

Thanks for the reply. Is this stated in the documentation anywhere?

Only by omission. I've updated Feature Brief: Bandwidth and Rate Shaping in Stingray Traffic Manager to make it known.
