You can set a bandwidth limit in the agent.cfg file within the MSDP pool (<path>/etc/puredisk/agent.cfg).
The setting to look for is bandwidthlimit (it will be set to 0 which means no limit).
The value to use is in KiB/s - so I think you would want to set this to 14000 (adjusted for bytes rather than bits).
This is set in the source MSDP and will apply to all duplications/replications from that pool.
The other way is to use network QOS to throttle bandwidth (which is outside NetBackup control).

Hi @davidmoline ,
Thank you for replying, sorry I got confused, is it correct that if we want to throttle the bandwidth to 140/mbps, the value of bandwidth limit in agent.cfs is need to convert to KiloBits or KiloBytes?
140 Megabits (Mb) = 143,360 Kilobits (Kb)
140 Megabits (Mb) = 17,920 KiloBytes (KB)

I thought I said bytes not bits in my original post but maybe I wasn't clear.
And then I guess I confused matters by simplfying the calculation to 14000 rather than a more correct 17920 (140 x 1024 / 8).

Hi @davidmoline , Ohh I see, thanks for this, I will consider this and test it. Thanks again and keep safe always.
