While implemented in front of your Web applications, CacheGuard manages generated Web traffic so you can affect more bandwidth to your more critical applications giving them a higher level of service. Reserving adequate bandwidth for an application ensures that application is always available to serve end-users according to its criticality for your business.
In addition, CacheGuard schedules the transmission of packets. The goal is to ensure fairness so that each Web user in a subnet is able to receive data in turn, thus preventing any single user from drowning out the rest. The Web traffic scheduling is automatically activated when the QoS feature is activated so all end-users in a subnet shaping class are served equitably.
