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:
- Open the Attix5 software and click on Tools, Options, then Connection Throttle.
- 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.
- 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.
- Repeat this process for any other custom speed limits you would like in place.
- Click Ok.
The connection throttled speeds will apply the next time a backup is run.
