    rate limiting on the switch

    Which brand / model would you recommend for those:

    1 - bw limiting on specific port (like 3mbits/sec on port4)

    2 - creating vlans by ports (like vlan1 = port1 + port2)

    3 - creating vlans by ips (like vlan1 =x.x.x.1 to 8, vlan2 = x.x.x.9 to 27)

    4 - managing the switch from GUI



    Thanks

    L-Link 3324SR Gigabit Stackable Layer 3 Switch

    D-Link DGS-3324SR Gigabit Stackable Layer 3 Switch

    These switches will do everything you are looking for at a fraction of the price of any other major name product on the market.

    Does the d-link limit both in and out? Catalyst 450x does; 3560G and Dell 62xx only limit inbound.

    Anybody know about which D-link models limit outbound too; or Procurve?

    Another feature you may want is redundant power supplies and fans, preferably hot-swap. Replacing a loaded 48-port switch just because an internal muffin fan has died is annoying.

    That dlink might be overkill for what you need if you don't need routing @ 1000Mbps on every port.

    So if all you're looking for is a 10/100 with a couple gigabit uplinks, you could easily save another $1500 from that.

    If the OP wants to "3 - creating vlans by ips (like vlan1 =x.x.x.1 to 8, vlan2 = x.x.x.9 to 27)" he will need a Layer 3 device that will assign IP interfaces.

    The D-Link switch will rate limit
    • RX Rate 1-999Mbit/sec
    • TX Rate 1-999Mbit/sec


    on any port.

    Sure it is an overkill switch, but I have found it to be the best over-all solution based on price/performance of anything out there if you want to do serious VLAN management for under $100/port.

    And the cool thing is when you run out of 24 ports, you stack another on with the 10 Gbit/sec stacking cable and then you can manage multiple units from one cli or web interface.

    I have found them to be very impressive switches, although I admidt D-link is not a household name in business class swiching.

    Thank you for your posts.

    The switch or system will handle about 100-200 mbps traffic - 22 servers - 256 ips totally, max 20 mbps per port. Some of ports 3 mbps, some of 12 mbps etc.

    What would you prefer:

    layer3 switch

    or

    layer2 switch + firewall/router software (like mikrotik router os) with bandwidth management capability.
