Manage bandwidth with the UI
The Bandwidth panel shows how much bandwidth Data 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:
- Select your Data Migrator product from the Products list in the dashboard.
- Select Bandwidth Management under Configuration.
- Uncheck the Unlimited option.
- Define the Maximum bandwidth limit and Unit (for example: MiB/s), and select Apply.
You will need to define a bandwidth limit for each Data Migrator server (if you have more than one).
Manage bandwidth with the CLI
Limit the total amount of bandwidth Data 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 limit can be active at a time. The default limit is unlimited bandwidth.
