Consistent & Easier Bandwidth Throttling for Replication
Currently with PureDisk and Media Server Dedupe, you have to hand-edit pd.conf and agent.cfg as described in the following SymWISE documents, in order to throttle the bandwidth used for replication between servers:
Unfortunately, the SymWISE documents above and the Deduplication - Additional Usage Information and the Deduplication Guides here and here, don't really provide clear and consistent information on how to throttle bandwidth, and doesn't reflect true behavior.
(For example, even with throttling properly set, replication will still utilize all bandwidth for the first five minutes, and then throttle down.)
Regardless of the sketchy information, the method for setting bandwidth limits is cumbersome and confusing.
NetBackup and PureDisk need to include bandwidth throttling settings for replication in the GUI, instead of forcing users to modify multiple text files, and the bandwidth limits need to be enforced at all times.
