About enabling network throttling

You can limit the effect of a backup on network performance by enabling network throttling.

Many variables affect the network performance. Consider the following points before you use this feature:

Network cards

Is your network wired or wireless? What are the speeds of your network cards?

Network backbone

What is the size of your network pipeline? Does it support 10-MB transfer rates, or 1-GB transfer rates?

Network server

How robust is your server hardware? How fast is its processor? How much RAM does it have? Is it fast or slow?

Backing up

How many computers are scheduled to back up at the same time?

Network traffic

Are backups scheduled to run when network traffic is heavy or light?
