Configuring SkySync Bandwidth Utilization Limit
SkySync can be configured to limit the maximum bandwidth that it will utilize through a setting in the performance tab of the Settings window.
To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click on the Settings button in the top-right corner of the application.
2. Click on the Performance tab.
3. Select the Limit maximum bandwidth check-box and enter the desired value.
This configuration setting is per-instance, meaning that in deployments where there are multiple SkySync Servers, this setting will affect each SkySync server individually and the bandwidth utilization is cumulative across all SkySync servers affecting all running jobs.
Please note that the configuration setting is in KB/second or Kilobytes / second. Network Bandwidth is typically measured in Mbps or Megabits / second.
Data Rate conversions are based on "Decimal multiples of the units" where:
- 1 Kilobit per second = 1,000 bits per second
- 1 Kilobyte per second = 8,000 bits per second
The formula for calculating maximum bandwidth in KBps is:
( Mbps * 125 ) / Nodes = KBps
To set a maximum bandwidth utilization of 50 Mbps where there is one SkySync Server, enter 6,250 in the Limit maximum bandwidth box.
To set a maximum bandwidth utilization of 50 Mbps where there are four SkySync Servers, enter 1,560 in the Limit maximum bandwidth box.
