    Backing up projects to Thunderbolt NAS server, TOO FAST!

    We are currently trying to backup some projects from our ISIS to our NAS server. The interface for our NAS server is Thunderbolt only. When we go to copy and backup the projects, the ISIS' bandwidth limit is reached and begins to crash, affecting the staff in our facility.

    Is there anyway to control the bandwidth limit on the ISIS? It makes me laugh to ask a question like this. Thanks.

    Can't you trottle down the copying speed within the backup software you are using? I use rsync a lot and i can use like --bwlimit= which can limit the speed, this comes handy especially if you want to copy files during day time.

    in the isis admin console, you can set device bandwidth restrictions. I do believe the ISIS5k admin guide mentions that you should consider using them on non-editing clients such as transfer systems to avoid impacting normal functionality.
