Hi All,

Need your expertise advise for below requirement:

Our client is a small server hosting company, this customer always complaint the bandwidth always get abused by their customer intentionally or unintentionally and also having trouble dealing with ddos.

As they are very small company, so they do not have budget to invest on those bandwidth controller eg allot, packet shaper, bluecoat.

From What I see; their issue is they do not have a proper tool to control their bandwidth and they should invest that.

Beside those super expensive equipment Is there anyway or alternative product that suitable for small company?

You don't need to buy any expensive hardware or software.

I suggest that you develop a QoS policy for this company based on their business requirements. IOS has QoS functionality built into the operating system.

This is a good statring point:

You can also monitor QoS using a free tool like Cacti:
