Limit How Much Data a Device Uses

Binfer allows data limits to be set at the device level, allowing the system admin to cap the amount of data sent to or from devices within the private cloud.  This feature can be useful in a variety of situations, but especially when Binfer is being used to transfer and sync data over satellite networks with expensive pay-per-MB plans.

Data Usage Report

The new Data Usage screen allows admin of the Binfer Enterprise Sync system to clearly and quickly see the data going in and out of each device.  If there is a data limit set for the device it will also be shown in the table allowing admin to quickly understand exactly how much data they have left for each device.

Setting a Data Limit

The data limit can be set in the NETWORK SETTINGS screen, selected from the left-hand navigation menu.  A value of -1 specifies no limit, a value of 0 will mean data should not transfer in that direction, and any positive value will transfer data up until that limit is reached.

All data limits are in MBs.  This setting is also editable via the remote settings module.
