I need to define different rate limits for clients on my Zone director. 5Mbps for each client during the day and 10Mbps during night. How do I define it ?
I use Ruckus ZoneFlex APs.
Please advise

There is functionality in ZD gui to rate limit and schedule WLAN availability but not multiple combinations of each.

Creative Workaround:
You could create a Night WLAN (2200-0600) and Day WLAN (0601-2159) and give them separate rate limits.
[Timings are merely sugggestions]

You would have to configure your clients to use the the two WLANs (I am just stating the obvious here).

See that Max's example includes the "Service Schedule" for when your APs will advertise/service the WLAN, giving you that additional control.

Thank you for your explanation.

Just wonder why such an elementry service of scheduled rate limiting is missing.

Seems to me that many customers would require this capability.
