Configure Bandwidth Throttling

You can implement bandwidth throttling and configure it to adapt it to the needs of your network.

Complete the following high-level steps.

  1. Create lists of web objects for use by the bandwidth throttling rules.
    You can, for example, create the following:
    • A list of hosts that transferring speed is limited for when objects are uploaded to them
    • A list of media types that transferring speed is limited for when they an object that belongs to one of these types is downloaded
  2. Create a rule set for bandwidth throttling.
  3. Within this rule set, create rules for bandwidth throttling.
    You can, for example, create the following:
    • A rule for limiting transferring speed when objects are uploaded to particular hosts.
    • A rule for limiting transferring speed when an object that belongs to a particular media type is downloaded.
  4. Design these rules as needed.
    You can, for example, do the following:
    • Configure a particular transferring speed for the Throttle.Client event that enables bandwidth throttling for uploading objects to the web.
    • Configure a particular transferring speed for the Throttle.Server event that enables bandwidth throttling for downloading objects from the web.
  5. Save your changes.
