Before setting the throttling rate, you should calculate the network throughput you actually require. Higher values consume more bandwidth, and the maximum throughput is limited to the available bandwidth of your network. It is best to use the minimum value that meets your needs.
Note: A value of zero Kbps removes bandwidth use restriction.
Throttling is imposed between the selected client and other remote clients or client computer groups. Therefore, only those other clients and client groups are shown.
Yes, but if two-way throttling is set between clients, the lower bandwidth setting takes precedence.
When the client is behind a firewall and connected to CommServe using SnapProtect proxy, the throttling should be set up between the client and SnapProtect proxy.
Any setting between 256 Kbps to 1024Mbps (1,024,000 Kbps) is valid.
Yes, throttling can be set at both the client (or client group) and MediaAgent levels, but setting it at only one of these, preferrably the MediaAgent, simplifies administration. If throttling is set at both levels, the actual limit enforced is the lower of the two settings.
Select Throttle Relative to Bandwidth from the Throttling Rule dialog box. Select If send bandwidth is less than (Kbps) and in Throttle at set the value to 20%.
Select Throttle Relative to Bandwidth from the Throttling Rule dialog box. Select If receive bandwidth is less than (Kbps) and in Throttle at set the value to 80%.
Yes. Absolute and relative throttling rules can be configured together for the same client or client group. If the absolute value is lower than the calculated relative value, the absolute value applies.
- You create two rules for a client:
- The first rule provides absolute throttling, with a send or receive value of 1,000 Kbps.
- The second rule sets relative throttling for the same client at 50% of available bandwidth when the bandwidth is less than 5,000 Kbps.
The Time Interval setting for bandwidth throttling takes its time information from the clock in the client computer on which the rule is created.
