Setting a Limit on File Transfer Bandwidth Between the CTPView Server and CTP Platforms (CTPView)
You can specify a limit on the bandwidth used for file transfers between the CTPView server and the CTP platforms in the network. By default, the bandwidth throttling value is set to 100,000 Kbps, the full bandwidth available on the server’s Ethernet port. Throttling the bandwidth is typically not necessary and may be required only when the local LAN segment experiences significant load and bandwidth limitations.
The following functions are affected by bandwidth throttling:
Gathering statistical data for plots
Synchronizing secondary CTPView servers
Saving CTP platform configurations
Modifying CTP platform login banners
Upgrading the CTP operating system software
The bandwidth throttling configuration has no effect on data packet throttling.
To configure the bandwidth limit:
- In the side pane, select Server > Administration.
The Administrative Functions pane is displayed.
- Click Automatic Functions.
The CTPView Automatic Functions window is displayed, and shows the current value for bandwidth throttling for the CTPView server.
- Select a new throttling value.
- Click Modify Throttle Value.
