Load balancing is not working as it should if one has reached monthly data usage limit. I would request following feature:

 

- Ability to set monthly/weekly/daily data limit. For each WAN

- Set Load Balancing Weight for the case when monthly data limit is reached 

- Ability to use wan's which reached their limits only for a backup if any of primary fails (or reached its monthly limits)

- Alert that data limit is reached

- Line/Quality control with smart weight selection

 

In a country of one location, there are 3 available providers, none of them has high limits, highest is 100G per month and if this is reached, then one has to take out SIM card from a router just for ability to buy more GBs/MBs, this would not be a problem as one can extend it per sms, sadly contract for 100G is internet only and that provider does not assign any phone number to the sim and sms sending is by that impossible, one has to put SIM card into a mobile phone to run USSD codes as router is not capable to run USSD and this is not possible on that location, instead 4 different contracts, together 500GB, but this is still not sufficient and in most cases it is not possible to take card out of router and additionaly maybe disrupt own network, with multiwan one has several days time for this which is enough for any staff (even if after weekend) to get it done without disruption of own timeplan. Additional problem for load balancing is the weight, as 4 different contracts are not from same provider, 2 of them is from provider which reduces the max. speed to 128Kbit/s when limits are reached, other two contracts which have slower speed by contract, those reduce the max. speed to 1Mbit/s, all contracts have same same up/down speeds, here would be their weights if limits are not reached (in Mbit/s):

200 200 50 50

 

if limits reached, those should be something like this (in Kbit/s):

128 128 1024 1024

 

As seen above, load balancing works wrongly keeping higher weight on connections which got slower, it would be nice if this is resolving in any way where one does not need additional hardware for this task. I would also not mind introducing line/quality control, as if load balancing can autoset weight by connection quality control and works, then above issue would be maybe resolved.

Hi @btx 

 

Thank you for your kindly feedback!

 

I have forwarded these requirements to the developer team for further evaluation.
