set time periods for network traffic throttling not showing

Post by dmitri-va » Oct 21, 2015 6:37 pm

if I configure time periods for network traffic throttling, there looks to be no way to see the settings that hve been set afterwards.

"time period" column just says 'periodic' and if I click to edit a line, there is no longer a text line which used to show included/excluded days/times when I was setting it.

Any other way to see the currently set time period?

Just open the settings again to view what is set in the Time/Day grid? How would you display in that small column every set hour of throttling if it was more complex than just a 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday setting?

Ethan is right here. In order to see detailed view you have to open Edit window again. I believe it's impossible to provide throttling window details in one tiny column and not overfill the window completely.

If you have any ideas how it can be achieve, don't hesitate to share them.

Thanks.

well, there lies the problem. Take a look at my screenshot and tell me what my time period is set for?

Just select "All the time" in the rule then. ;)

ok, somehow everyone is totally missing my point.

when I initially go to edit a traffic rule and choose the time period (M-F, 6am-8pm in this case), it is all visible and you see the graphic representation, as well as confirmation in plain English at the bottm, per screenshot below:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwT7OH ... sp=sharing

now, if I go back to edit the same traffic rule, I no longer see the graph showing anything, and no more summary at the bottom, per this screenshot:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwT7OH ... sp=sharing

so, how on earth can I see/confirm my current time period setting? I believe this is a bug, unless I'm missing something.

Might be a stupid question - but did you actually click disable? Because on a first screenshot you just select an area, and not apply throttling rules for that period. In order to apply those, not only do you have to select a time window, but also click disable. Thanks.

And it's actually vice versa: you need to select the time when the rule should not be in effect and click Disable. Purple means the rule is active (traffic is throttled) and white means full bandwidth mode.

ok, I over engineered this :) should have probably read the guide first.

Since I though I couldn't do multiple selections for 'disable' (I tried selecting non-continuous areas by holding 'ctrl' or 'shift' buttons), I employed the logic below. Now I know that I can do multiple selections, by selecting one continuous area at a time and clicking 'disable', then selecting another continuous area and click 'disable', and so on. Wasn't obvious to me. Thank you for bearing with me here :)

my over engineered logic:
My goal is to have a global throttling at 100Mbps for M-F 6am-8pm, and global throttling at 300Mbps the rest of the work days and the weekends.
Below is my screen capture video.
I first set a 100Mbps rule to be enabled M-F, 6am-8pm, so I select the square, click enable and click on OK
I then set the 300Mbps rule to be disabled at M-F, 6am-8pm, thus enabling it for the rest of the M-F and the weekends. So, I select the M_F 6am-8pn square, click disabled, and then click OK.
I then go back to those rules to see my selections, and it shows nothing, except the white square for the 300Mbps disable rule.

Thats not what you do in the video. In the video you enable 100 Mbps rule to be enabled 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. (the default)

You need to disable the rule for the days/hours you do not want it to be active.
To do that:
Mark all sunday, click disable
Mark all saturday, click disable
Mark Mon-fri 00.00-06.00, click disable
Mark Mon-fri 20.00-24.00, click disable
And click ok.
