Creating bandwidth limits

Bandwidth limits are used to govern the amount of bandwidth each connection to this host can consume.

To create a new Bandwidth Limit:

  1. From the top menu, select Server > Hosts. The Hosts page opens.
  2. Select a host from the list by clicking on the hyperlinked host name. The Host Details page opens.
  3. Select Bandwidth Limits from the left navigation menu. The Bandwidth Limits page opens.
  4. Click Create. The Create Bandwidth Limit page opens.
  5. Enter the appropriate values for each field.

    Name. Enter a name for this rule. This name is for your reference only and can include up to 256 characters.

    Limit. Specify the maximum amount of bandwidth you want to allow users and groups to which this limit is applied to consume.

    Users/Groups. This list contains all of the users and groups configured on the host. Select the checkboxes next to the users and groups to whom you want this rule to apply.

    Note: Bandwidth limits throttle the amount of bandwidth each user can consume per connection.  If a user makes multiple connections simultaneously, each connection is allowed the maximum bandwidth.
