i'm running sophos on vm and i would like to ask if we can limit users by bandwidth
The short answer is no.
The SWA is a pure web proxy so it does not have any understanding of traffic based in bytes. It only accepts or rejects the request based on your policy.
lets say you make a request for a 100 meg video file, the SWA grants the request and returns the file to the browser. You get board after 20 seconds of the 5 min video and close the tab. the SWA has no understanding you stopped the rest of the video. All it knows is that user X made a request for a 100 meg file.
The SWA and UTM use time based quotas (requires HTTPS Scanning / Decrypt and scan) so you could limit a user to 30 mins of facebook or similar.
If you need to get more granular and police policy with exact byte counters I believe the XG firewall allows to you create byte based policy. as the XG is an actual router it would understand that only X bytes were transferred even tho the file headers say its 100 megs.
