Define your bandwidth policy

By default, LiveData Migrator will use all network bandwidth available to the server unless a specific limit is applied. Follow the UI or CLI instructions to set bandwidth limits.

Manage bandwidth with the UI#

The Bandwidth panel shows how much bandwidth LiveData Migrator is currently using to migrate data. It shows this over the most recent 5 minute period and continually updates. The left axis scales automatically to accommodate the highest throughput during that period.

To apply a bandwidth limit between the source and target filesystem(s), follow the steps below:

  1. In the Filesystem list on the dashboard, click the settings for the appropriate filesystem.
  2. Select Bandwidth Management under the Grouping list.
  3. Uncheck the Unlimited option.
  4. Define the Maximum bandwidth limit and Unit (for example: MiB/s), and click Apply.

You will need to define a bandwidth limit for each LiveData Migrator server (if you have more than one).

Manage bandwidth with the CLI#

Limit the total amount of bandwidth LiveData Migrator can use by using the bandwidth policy command. Once defined, the bandwidth limit will apply immediately to all migrations (new and ongoing).

Only one bandwidth policy can be active at a time. The default policy is unlimited bandwidth.
