DPM 2010 limit network traffic RRS feed

  • You may check the make/model of the network adapter and make sure it supports QoS. Also make sure it has the latest driver. If you have some other application you can use to test if QoS is working on this server, that would be useful because DPM Bandwidth throttling is completely dependent on QoS.

    In regards to your question about a job that is in progress, I don't know for sure and again, this is a QoS function not a DPM function, but I would expect that whatever parameter was applied at the time the job started would continue until the job completes because QoS is negotiated at the beginning of the session. You may want to follow up on this on the Windows Server Networking forums.

  • Have you verified that QoS is enabled on the network adapters of the DPM server and the protected server? QoS also needs to be supported by any intermediary device (switches and routers).

  • Hola MarcReynolds [MSFT],

    Yes, I verified that QoS is enabled on the DPM and server agent.
    I have verified that one other agent respect this limit, I verified this from the TAsk Manager->Network.
    With the agent that work correcly I view a 0,06% used network, but with the agent with problem, I view 0,2% used network.
    The agents are on the same LAN.

    One other question:
    If I configure the "work time" from 9am to 9pm, and one job start at 8am y continue for 2 hours, what happen at 9am? The job modify the traffic network with the "work limits" or follow with "no work limits"?
     Thanks.
