You can control the speed at which a protection group replicates snapshots to a cloud file system by changing the replication bandwidth throttle settings.

For optimum performance, set throttling to at least 100 Mbps. (The lowest setting is 20 Mbps.) You can also turn off the throttle setting.


  1. From the left navigation select Protected sites, and then select the site you want to throttle replication for.
  2. From the upper-right of the page, select the drop-down menu and click Throttle replication.
  3. In the Throttle replication dialog box, select Throttle to and then enter a numerical value in the Mbps text box to set the desired replication speed.
  4. Click OK.
