Increasing the Number of Tunnels for a Network Route
To improve throughput and reduce latencies, you can increase the number of tunnels for a network route for one-way connections, two-way connections, and connections using a Commvault network gateway. Increasing the number of tunnels for a network route is most useful for connections between two MediaAgents and connections between a MediaAgent and a network gateway (for example, performing a large backup via a network gateway).
Note: If you increase the number of tunnels for a network route, do not configure throttling between the local entity and remote client computer or client computer group.
- From the Commcell Browser, expand Network Topologies, right-click the client computer or group of client computers (that is, the local entity) that you want to increase the number of tunnels for, and then select Properties.
- Click the Network button.
The Network Properties dialog appears.
- On the Network Route Configuration tab, select the Outgoing Routes subtab.
- Select the Remote Entity that you want to increase the number of tunnels for, and then select Edit.
The Route Settings dialog box appears.
- In Number of tunnels per route, enter the number of tunnels that you want to use (default value is 1, and maximum value is 8).
Note: For laptops, the recommended value for Number of tunnels per route is 2.
- Click OK.
The network properties Summary tab in each affected client shows the new configuration for the increase in number of tunnels. The image below shows an example of a summary for a client named c333333, configured with 4 streams (tunnels).
