Regulating bandwidth use by backup proxy

Post by IndyBri » Oct 04, 2018 4:00 pm

During the day I need to limit the bandwidth to 50 Mbits....at 4PM I can raise it to 100 Mbits. Is there a way with Powershell or something in Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 that would allow mt automate those changes at 7AM (go back to 50mbits) and 4PM (go back to 100 Mbits).

Feature request: Alllow us to set bandwidth use windows when creating backup proxy servers.

EX: 50Mbits 7AM to 4PM, 100 Mbits 4PM to 7AM

You could use Set-VBOProxy (https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/vbo36 ... tml?ver=20) to do the job with a scheduled task I guess. You are right it is not implemented right now and when you set throttling it will be for all the time

Mike...that was what I was looking for...wrote the scripts, and they are being executed in Task Scheduler at appropriate times. Thanks

Import-module Veeam.Archiver.PowerShell
$proxy = Get-VBOProxy -hostname YOURPROXYNAMEHERE
Set-VBOProxy -Proxy $proxy -ThreadsNumber 64 -EnableNetworkThrottling -ThrottlingValue 100 -ThrottlingUnit Mbps

That sets it to 100 Mbps

Was a little tricky getting it setup in Task Scheduler on Win 2016 but I finally figured out the syntax for setting up a new task...works great. Lasts long time.
