Proxies are tightly coupled with repositories. While a single proxy server can host multiple repositories, each repository is uniquely coupled with a single proxy server.

Please also refer to the Repository section for more details.

Proxy Best Practices

Traffic Throttling

Throttle the used bandwidth per proxy on a shared network connection to not block other applications

By default the proxy servers will take all available bandwidth to run the backups as fast as possible. As normally there is no dedicated internet connection available just for VB365 backup, it’s reasonable to throttle the maximum usable bandwidth (which is done per proxy) so that other applications do not suffer (too much). Depending on the backup schedule the limit should be set to a reasonable value. It might be okay to take 90% of the bandwidth at night but if the backup runs during working hours only 40% can be consumed without affecting operations.
