Dear Netapp Gurus,

 

I have the following question. If I wanted to restrict replication bandwith on my destination cluster what would I do? I guess, I would enable global throttling option using CLI, but I am not sure where - on the source or destination cluster?

 

Any help will be much appraciated!

Hi there! ONTAP 9's bandwidth throttles can be set on either sending or receiving side, based on your judgement on which is best for your network topology. More information is at https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap/data-protection/snapmirror-global-throttling-concept.html

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @AlexDawson , thank you for your post. Then, I would say, if I need restrict all replication bandwith on my destination cluster, I will enable global throttling on the source cluster.
