Traffic Shaper / Limiter / Bandwidth / Burst

  • Hello,

    In pfSense, under Firewall > Traffic Shaper > Limiter > Bandwidth

    the hint for this field says:

    Bandwidth is a rate (e.g. Mbit/s), burst is a total amount of data that will be transferred at full speed after an idle period.

    How do you exactly define what burst amount to put in? For example if I wanted to allow 5 megabytes of data to be burst at full speed after an idle period, how do I enter that in?

    5000 kilobytes
    5 megabytes

    What is the proper way to populate this field?

    Thank you!
