(Doc ID 1992353.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 11/06 U3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Is it possible to apply throttling on SFTP and FTP incoming and outgoing file transfer for all users on Solaris in order not to consume network resources and impact live traffic. It is not possible to apply from network side, as server connected to layer2 switch that doesn't support differentiate between ports.

It's needed to apply bandwidth limit on interface ce0 for SFTP and FTP only to be 50 Mbps
