Remote Copy throughput and performance tuning

By default, Remote Copy sends data as fast as possible on all links between a Remote Copy pair. You can limit RCIP throughput so that data is sent at a data transfer rate (throughput) less than or equal to the maximum limit of the IP network. For example, limit throughput if you have a leased line that charges based on the bit rate used. Set throughput limits when configuring or editing the RCIP target.


Throughput limits are not recommended for Remote Copy groups in synchronous mode. Setting a throughput limitation can result in higher latency for host writes to the primary volumes for synchronously replicated Remote Copy groups.
