QoS for Applications and Users

A Palo Alto Networks firewall provides basic QoS, controlling traffic leaving the firewall according to network or subnet, and extends the power of QoS to also classify and shape traffic according to application and user. The Palo Alto Networks firewall provides this capability by integrating the features App-ID and User-ID with the QoS configuration. App-ID and User-ID entries that exist to identify specific applications and users in your network are available in the QoS configuration so that you can easily specify applications and users for which you want to manage and/or guarantee bandwidth.
