Description

Currently the traffic shaper is done per interfaces. In the absolute this is not wrong but can be enhanced for multi wan.

People using multi WAN (load-balancer, fail over, ...) might not have the similar available speed per interface.
Let's say :
- WAN1 is 300mb/s down and 50mb/s up
- WAN2 is 25mb/s down and 1mb/s up
- Multi WAN is set for fail over (WAN1 is default until it fail and switch for WAN2)

Currently on the traffic shaper you'll have :
- Possibility to shape WAN1 (upload - 50mb/s)
- Possibility to shape WAN2 (upload - 1mb/s)
- Possibility to shape LAN (download - 300mb/s and 25mb/s depending on fail over)

Sadly in this kind of configuration if you setup LAN for 300mb/s (which is the main WAN speed for download), it will be totally wrong for the fail over WAN2. The QoS will not work as is it utterly higher than 25mb/s.
My request is to allow n configuration for LAN, allowing to switch for the proper configuration, depending on the WAN interface used. I'm not sure it's possible, but still feel it could be a great enhancement for home, small enterprise or any business company usage.

Feel free to ask me more question if you didn't quite understood my request.

Thanks.
