Bandwidth policy settings

Sep 23, 2016
The Bandwidth section contains policy settings to avoid performance problems related to client session bandwidth use.
Important: Using these policy settings with the Multi-Stream policy settings may produce unexpected results. If you use Multi-Stream settings in a policy, ensure these bandwidth limit policy settings are not included.

Audio redirection bandwidth limit

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth, in kilobits per second, for playing or recording audio in a user session.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the Audio redirection bandwidth limit percent setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) is applied.

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth in kilobits per second for accessing a COM port in a client connection. If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the COM port redirection bandwidth limit percent setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) is applied.

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth for accessing COM ports in a client connection as a percentage of the total session bandwidth.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the COM port redirection bandwidth limit setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) is applied.

If you configure this setting, you must also configure the Overall session bandwidth limit setting, which specifies the total amount of bandwidth available for client sessions

File redirection bandwidth limit

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth, in kilobits per second, for accessing a client drive in a user session.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the File redirection bandwidth limit percent setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) takes effect.

File redirection bandwidth limit percent

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth limit for accessing client drives as a percentage of the total session bandwidth.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the File redirection bandwidth limit setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) is applied.

If you configure this setting, you must also configure the Overall session bandwidth limit setting, which specifies the total amount of bandwidth available for client sessions.

HDX MediaStream Multimedia Acceleration bandwidth limit

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth limit, in kilobits per second, for delivering streaming audio and video using HDX MediaStream Multimedia Acceleration.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the HDX MediaStream Multimedia Acceleration bandwidth limit percent setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) takes effect.

HDX MediaStream Multimedia Acceleration bandwidth limit percent

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth for delivering streaming audio and video using HDX MediaStream Multimedia Acceleration as a percentage of the total session bandwidth.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the HDX MediaStream Multimedia Acceleration bandwidth limit setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) takes effect.

If you configure this setting, you must also configure the Overall session bandwidth limit setting, which specifies the total amount of bandwidth available for client sessions.

LPT port redirection bandwidth limit

Note: For the Virtual Delivery Agent 7.0 through 7.8, configure this setting using the registry; see Configure COM Port and LPT Port Redirection settings using the registry.

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth, in kilobits per second, for print jobs using an LPT port in a single user session.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the LPT port redirection bandwidth limit percent setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) is applied.

LPT port redirection bandwidth limit percent

Note: For the Virtual Delivery Agent 7.0 through 7.8, configure this setting using the registry; see Configure COM Port and LPT Port Redirection settings using the registry.

This setting specifies the bandwidth limit for print jobs using an LPT port in a single client session as a percentage of the total session bandwidth.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the LPT port redirection bandwidth limit setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) is applied.

If you configure this setting, you must also configure the Overall session bandwidth limit setting, which specifies the total amount of bandwidth available for client sessions.

Overall session bandwidth limit

This setting specifies the total amount of bandwidth available, in kilobits per second, for user sessions.

The maximum enforceable bandwidth cap is 10 Mbps (10,000 Kbps). By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

Limiting the amount of bandwidth consumed by a client connection can improve performance when other applications outside the client connection are competing for limited bandwidth.

Printer redirection bandwidth limit

This setting specifies the maximum allowed bandwidth, in kilobits per second, for accessing client printers in a user session.

By default, no maximum (zero) is specified.

If you enter a value for this setting and a value for the Printer redirection bandwidth limit percent setting, the most restrictive setting (with the lower value) is applied.
