Presented herein are solutions for adaptive bandwidth usage in wide area networks (WANs) such as software-defined wide-area networks (SDWANs or SD-WANs). The solutions presented herein include inbound link bandwidth detection, and usage/overrun publication along with a percentage of traffic to be moved. The solutions presented herein also adjust outbound traffic based on a peer site's overrun alarm and percentage information. The solutions presented herein may be employed for a Multiple Producer sites, Single Consumer site (MPSC) use case and a load-balance coexists with preferred policy use case in SDWAN. The solutions presented herein also allow for fast convergence.
