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. The maximum throttle rate allowed on the server’s Ethernet port is 100,000 Kbps. By default, the bandwidth throttling value is set to 800 Kbps. 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

  • Network monitoring


The bandwidth throttling configuration has no effect on data packet throttling.

To configure the bandwidth limit:

  1. In the side pane, select Server > Administration.

    The Administrative Functions pane is displayed.

  2. Click Automatic Functions.

    The CTPView Automatic Functions window is displayed, and shows the current value for bandwidth throttling for the CTPView server.

  3. Select a new throttling value.

    Valid values are: 100, 200, 500, 800, 1000, 2000, 5000, 8000, 10000, 20000, 50000, 80000, and 100000 Kbps.

  4. Click Modify Throttle Value.
