Is there any way to limit google drive bandwidth? We are dealing with both local client installed on the machine and web site access. Local client has bandwidth limitation. I am curious is there is any way from aerohive side. Thank You Experts.

There are a number of articles on rate limiting in HiveNation but I suspect that you want something closer to the Aruba Instant application throttling functionality (as shown below) but, to the best of my knowledge, this level of application granularity is not available with Aerohive.

Basically, with Aerohive you assign the application/protocol to a specific QoS level (voice, voice, best effort, background) and then assign a rate limit to that QoS level.  The assigning of the application/protocol to a specific QoS level is unique to each network policy:

While the rate limits per QoS level can be unique to each user profile or common to multiple user profiles:

Agreed.  This functionality is not available with Aerohive. We do our application throttling with our Barracuda firewall.
