Choking Network

  • I normally run the deploy process after business hours but I notice if I try to do a deploy during business hours. End users complaint that their network is extremely slow. Is there a way to limit bandwidth through clone deploy while deploying. Perhaps a 50 percent usage?

  • Nothing built into CloneDeploy, but you have some options depending on your server OS. If you installed on a Windows Server, you can easily enable smb bandwidth limiting through powershell. If it's Linux there are various tools such wondershaper or firewall rules. Finally if you installed on a Windows Desktop version, your only real option is to change the nic to 100mb in device manager. Also, not ideal, but you could use ondemand multicast for a single computer at a time, which should go much slower than using the smb share.
