Introduce bandwidth limit per Client/IP on firewall

Sometimes a single client / host in the office network consumes so much bandwith that the internet connection becomes unusable for all other users. This should be avoided by configuring a bandwith limit / traffic shaping on the firewall.

What to change

Explore options of pfSense to limit bandwith per host / IP then update this ticket with more details.
Ideally it should be possible to define peak and off-peak limits (e.g. office hours and evenings / weekends, thinking of backup or other scheduled transfers at night)
Also it would be nice to have different settings per subnet (e.g. normal clients and servers).

Is this still the case? if so I think is safe to move this ticket to the hub since there has not been any change

Since moving into the new Cologne office with the 200 Mbit/s connection, we didn't have the problem of a single client occupying the whole line. So we dropped this ticket until it becomes a problem again.
