 +=====Terms Used=====
 +
 +====CIR====
 +
 +Commit information rate, this is the rate that is guaranteed to a specific class or pool. The sum of all CIRs of any child item should not exceed the parent CIR, unless you know 100% what you're doing.
 +
 +====Limit (bandwidth term)====
 +
 +This is the maximum rate that a class or pool can consume. The sum lf all limits of child items should not exceed that of the parent Limit, again unless you know 100% what you're doing.
 +
 +====Rate====
 +
 +The rate refers to the current traffic speed seen for the class or pool
 +
 +====PPS====
 +
 +PPS stands for packets per second, this is how many packets are seen for the class or pool per second.
 +
 +====Class====
 +
 +A traffic class refers to a number of "​bands"​ which a pool may fall within. If you configure 3 traffic classes from 1 to 3, traffic class 1 will take priority over traffic class 2 and 3. Traffic class 3 will be treated with the least priority. Bandwidth is allocated to each class in sequence from 1 to 3. If there is bandwidth left from over from 1, pools in class 2 may exceed their CIR until this is used up, should there still be bandwidth left over, class 3 may utilize this bandwidth.
 +
 +====Pool====
 +
 +Pools contain pool members. Pools have a CIR and Limit set to ensure their pool members do not exceed this.
 +
 +====Pool Member====
 +
 +Pool members are current users and/or IP addresses. Any number of pool members can be added to a pool. All these pool members traffic is treated equally by the pool and the limit applied to it as a whole.
 +
 +====Limit (configuration page "Add Limit"​)====
 +
 +A limit in the configuration sense refers to adding a pool and pool member at the same time, simplifying the configuration process.
