To set a global limit for the incoming replication traffic from all peer sites, both remote cloud sites and on-premises sites, you can configure the bandwidth throttling for the cloud site.

The bandwidth throttling to the cloud site is configured and operates the same for both types of cloud sites:
  • Cloud Director site
  • vSphere DR and migration
For more information, see Bandwidth throttling.


  • Verify that the cloud site uses only external Replicator Appliance instances.
  • Verify that for configuring bandwidth throttle for vSphere DR and migration, VMware Cloud Director Availability 4.6 or later is deployed in the provider cloud site.


  1. Log in to the management interface of the VMware Cloud Director Availability appliance.
    1. In a Web browser, go to https://Appliance-IP-Address/ui/admin.
    2. Select Appliance login or SSO login and enter the root or the single sign-on user credentials.
    3. Click Login.
  2. In the left pane under Configuration, click Settings.
  3. Under Tunnel settings next to Bandwidth throttling, click Edit.
  4. In the Bandwidth throttling window, configure the global limit for the incoming traffic from all peer sites.
    1. To enable bandwidth throttling, select the Limit all incoming traffic radio button.
    2. In the Maximum text box, enter a numerical value for the replication traffic limit in megabits per second.
    3. From the Tunnel nic menu, select the network adapter that is connected to the local site components.
    4. To save the settings, click Apply.
