At the Traffic Rules step of the wizard, configure throttling rules to limit the outbound traffic rate for the backup proxy. Throttling rules can help you manage bandwidth usage and minimize impact of data protection and disaster recovery tasks on network performance. For more information, see Setting Network Traffic Throttling Rules.
The list of throttling rules contains only the rules that are applicable to the backup proxy. The rule is applied to the backup proxy if the backup proxy IP address falls into the source IP range of the rule.
To view rule settings:
- Select the rule in the list.
- Click View on the right of the rule list.
You can open global throttling settings and modify them directly from the New VMware Proxy wizard. To do this, click the Manage network traffic throttling rules link at the bottom of the wizard.
