How to set Fair Usage Policy in UNIBOX?

The fair usage policy displays all fair usage policies defined for different groups in UNIBOX. UNIBOX allows administrator to change the user's bandwidth on runtime based on the data used by the user in particular time interval, defined under this policy. The fair usage policy is a run-time policy i.e. the restrictions are applied to user's session while the session is still in progress. This allows the administrators to curtail the bandwidth usage of heavy Internet users thus enforcing a fair usage policy on the network.
