Controlling Bandwidth Throughput for a Migration Job



Advanced users of the Migration App.

This product is currently in Limited Availability. We invite any Customers interested in using the product to engage Egnyte Professional Services or their Customer Success Manager to have it enabled for their domain.


For any migration job, you have the option to configure various advanced settings, including Empty Folders, Sanitization, Unattended Mode, Confluence. These are all available from the Migration Details Page. If you have Advanced Mode enabled for your domain, you will also have the ability to control Throughput from the same Advanced Options menu.

Enabling Advanced Mode

Before you can access Throughput, you must have Advanced Mode enabled for your domain.  To do this, submit a ticket to support@egnyte.com to request it.  

Accessing Advanced Options

Once Advanced Mode has been enabled for your domain, go to the Migration Details page. In the left column, click on the arrow next to Advanced Options to open the drop-down menu.


If a migration job is currently running a command, you may not modify any of the Advanced Options. You must wait until the command has completed before configuring advanced settings for the job.


Configuring Throughput

Select Throughput from the left menu.


Select ON for Enable Bandwidth Controls and you will be presented with another drop-down menu.


You have two options for controlling bandwidth: 1Mb/second at all times or 1Mb/second during business hours. Make your selection and click Save.

You may return to this menu at any time to change your selection. Remember that before you can make any changes, the migration job cannot have a command running.

Your threshold for this job is displayed in the right column of the Migration Details page for each job, under Other Details.
