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.

Procedure

  1. 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.
  2. Click the Network button.

    The Network Properties dialog appears.

  3. On the Network Route Configuration tab, select the Outgoing Routes subtab.
  4. Select the Remote Entity that you want to increase the number of tunnels for, and then select Edit.

    The Route Settings dialog box appears.

  5. 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.

  6. 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).
