In VMware Cloud Director Availability 4.0, as a service provider, you can configure the replication policies to set a limit for the replication data traffic from the on-premises sites to the cloud site.

Configuring the bandwidth throttling limit in the replication policy affects all VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance instances, on all on-premises sites that target the organization to which this replication policy applies.

For more information about the replication policies, see Configuring Replication Policies.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. In the left pane, click Policies.
  2. Select an existing replication policy.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. In the Edit Policy window, select Enable bandwidth throttling.
  5. In Max throughput per On-Premises Replicator Appliance, enter the limit in mbit/s.
  6. To save the bandwidth throttling limit, click Apply.
    Without re-pairing the on-premises sites, the bandwidth limit applies in 30 minutes.
  7. In the list of policies, in the Maximum throughput column you can see the bandwidth throttling limits for each policy.

Results

All instances of the VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance in the organization to which the replication policy applies receive and enforce the configured bandwidth throttling limit.

What to do next

You can also configure a global limit for the total incoming replication traffic from all cloud sites. For more information, see Configure the Global Bandwidth Throttling for the Cloud Site.
