Hard limits to Vlan and hard limits to IP
I would like to setup hard limits. I have a 100M pipe up/down.
I would like to set up a VLAN with only 10M for the entire vlan. From that vlan i would like to limit each IP 1.5M max. Is this possible? I tried doing the limiters, but that only does the 10M for the vlan and not the IP's.

I think you can do one or the other with limiters, you'll need to read up on it.
Have a play with the masking if you want to limit per host.
I have read all of that. It is not clear on how to set it up which is why i am here. I tried reading on how to setup the guaranteed bandwidth, but it doesn't specify how to set it up.
Hoping someone has done it before and can shed some light.

using the captive portal seems too much like a hack. Does PFSense not support vlan bandwidth limit and IP bandwidth limit on the same interface?
Set limiter with a 32-bit mask. That will give you a queue per host of that value.
You cannot do both the 10M on the interface and the 1.5M per host.
Generally, if you want to limit on the interface, do the interface limiter and don't worry about the per-host limiter. What do you care if a host is getting more than 1.5 if the overall limit is being policed at 10?
Ok, so i wasn't going crazy. Seems odd that you cant do both. I guess you can only do both if you use the captive portal and interface limit.
Sometimes we have clients that order an amount of bandwidth and they request hard limits on clients.
do they take feature request?
You could do what you want but not all on one pfSense. And, if you think about it, one of the values has to be controlling. If you limit the whole circuit to 10M and 8 1.5M customers stress their circuits, someone is going to get less than 1.5M.
@derelict i get it. It's just something that is used often in our world
