Throttle connection upload speed on Attix5 Pro

Attix5 Pro (Server Edition & Desktop Edition) allows users to throttle the upload speed at a specific time of day. This is commonly used to prevent the backup software using up all the available Internet bandwidth when running a backup during the day. Data is then only transferred at specific speeds during each interval.

To setup connection throttling, create a throttle map:

  1. Open the Attix5 software and click on Tools, Options, then Connection Throttle.
  2. In the Speed Limits area you can specify one or more speed limits. For example, you can select Limit 1 to only allow an upload speed of 40KB/sec. A limit of 0 means that no limit will be applied.
  3. In the Throttle Map area select a speed limit colour you wish to use such as green (Limit 1). Click on the areas you want to have the Limit 1 applied.
  4.  Repeat this process for any other custom speed limits you would like in place.
  5. Click Ok.

Attix5 Throttling

The connection throttled speeds will apply the next time a backup is run.
