Question Title How to prioritize SonicWALL Management traffic arriving on that interface using "Management Traffic Only" option under Network > Interfaces > Advanced tab (5.8.1.0 and above)

Article Applies To:

Gen5: NSA E8500, NSA E7500, NSA E6500, NSA E5500, NSA 5000, NSA 4500, NSA 3500, NSA 2400, NSA 240
Gen5 TZ Series: TZ 100, TZ 100 Wireless, TZ 200, TZ 200 W, TZ 210, TZ 210 Wireless,

Firmware/Software Version: SonicOS 5.8.1.0 and above
Services: Interfaces


Feature/Application:

SonicOS 5.8.1.0 provides a " Management Traffic Only" option on the Network > Interaces ( Advanced tab of the interface configuration window), when configuring an interface from the Network > Interfaces page. When selected, this option prioritizes all traffic arriving on that interface. The administrator should enable this option ONLY on interfaces intended to be used exclusively for management purposes. If this option is enabled on a regular interface, it will still prioritize the traffic, but that may not be the desirable result. It is up to the administrator to limit the traffic to just management; the firmware does not have the ability to prevent pass- through traffic.

The purpose of this option is to provide the ability to access the SonicOS management interface even when the appliance is running at 100% utilization.
