Article Summary

You can limit the cloud sync upload and download speeds using throttling rules to define multiple times and bandwidths for bandwidth throttling.

To control sync throughput:

  1. In the Configuration view, select Cloud Drive > Cloud Drive in the navigation pane.
    The Cloud Drive page is displayed.

  2. Click Settings.
    The Cloud Drive Settings window is displayed.

    When no throttling rules are defined, there is no speed restriction for uploading or downloading files to the Cloud Drive.
  3. Click Add throttling rule.
  4. Define the following for the throttling rule:
    Out Speed Limit (kb/s) – The maximum speed to use for cloud drive sync upload in Kbits per second. The minimum value for the speed is 8kb/s. If a value is not set, there is no speed limit.
    In Speed Limit (kb/s) – The maximum speed to use for cloud drive sync download in Kbits per second. The minimum value for the speed is 8kb/s. If a value is not set, there is no speed limit.
    Start at – Specify the time when the bandwidth limit used for cloud drive sync throttling starts.
    End at – Specify the time when the bandwidth limit used for cloud drive sync throttling ends. When the end time is before the start time, the end time is the next day.
    Days – Specify that the bandwidth used for cloud drive sync throttling should be restricted every day (the default) or only on specified days.
    Note

    A maximum of 50 rules can be defined.
    When the start and end times for more than one rule overlap, the order of the rules in the list determines how they are implemented with the rule at the top of the list implemented first. Use Move Down and Move Up to change the order the rules are listed.

  5. To remove a rule, select the rule row and click the image.png icon.
    The rule is removed.
  6. Click Save.
