We selected Net Enforcer by Allot to manage our bandwidth. It has some features that met our needs better than Packeteer and has a good management interface as well. This year we mainly are fine tuning our policies and bandwidth priorities, time-of-day, etc. As for peer-to-peer, we do not allow for our students (their VLANS)to send outgoing but can receive incoming up to a certain amount of bandwidth reserved for that purpose. The result is that we manage very close to the 1 Mbps Internet bandwidth available and folks seem pleased with the results (so far until the next show stopper arrives on the scene).
