Fortigate pro tip #1 traffic shaper dropped bytes

So I had a customer that had internet drops. They were sharing an internet connection bridged off another fortigate. They had traffic shaping enabled and tldr the max bandwidth setting was causing dropped bytes.

To resolve this I had to set the inbandwidth and outbandwidth of the WAN interface to the correct value.

conf system interface

edit wan1

set inbandwidth 10240

set outbandwidth 10240

end

After seeing that and putting the max traffic shaper bandwidth to a higher value e.g. 20480, the dropped bytes issue stopped happening.
