MWG || bandwidth control is for one connection user? Or total value for appliance?

Hi Everyone,


I got a question about bandwidth control, but seem the related detail article cannot access now


Anyone know if I setup "YouTube" as a class of bandwidth control

Does it mean "total" bandwidth from "YouTube" is following this Max bandwidth 

Or this client Connection following this Max bandwidth ?


As configuration as below


I got a policy for YouTube, which defined a policy "from server"  bandwidth control 

I know that it is from YouTube to appliance bandwidth control


But because it is hit by a policy bandwidth control

I am not sure how it control

Dear @tony2 ,


due to the fact that you define Classes, where certain traffic will be part of, you define also overall Bandwidth for this Class. This mean that every traffic that hit your rule will receive defined bandwidth. However the overall defined limit will not be exceeded. For Bandwidth Control it does not matter how many users of session only the limit of defined Class is the trigger either to continue or limit traffic.
