We have some issues with our use of our cloud backend (scality ring).

When running backup or data verification the request send by the media agent create some peak of use on the juniper switch (QFX 5100). that causing drop of packet and in result in commvault error reading chunk. we have multiple bad chunk alerts.

the network team ask us to set a limitation of the network bandwith to limit peak on juniper switch.

how can it be possible to limit the bandwith between media agent and cloud librairies ?

kind regards,

Hi @christophe ,


We have a few ways of setting the throttling, depending on your configuration and which type of Jobs are causing the issue:

MA to Cloud Storage (Additional Settings):


SP Copy level (Non-primary copy):


MA Aux Copy Bandwidth:


You can also set Client Level and Subclient Level Throttling too.
