Network bandwidth usage throttling limits the amount of network bandwidth that DPM can use to create and synchronize replicas. Throttling helps to ensure that network bandwidth is available to applications other than DPM.
Network bandwidth usage throttling enables you to limit the amount of network resources a synchronization job can consume. However, network bandwidth usage throttling can lengthen the amount of time each synchronization job takes to complete.
By default, the throttling option is not selected.
To enable computer-level network bandwidth usage throttling
In DPM Administrator Console, click Management on the navigation bar.
Click the Agent tab, and select the computer you want to throttle.
In the Actions pane, click Throttle computer.
In the Throttle dialog box, check Enable network bandwidth usage throttling.
Select Throttle Settings and Work Schedule for the computer.
Note You can configure network bandwidth usage throttling separately for work hours and nonwork hours, and you can define the work hours for the protected computer.
To apply your settings, click OK.
