IIS Bandwidth throttling

Posted on 2009-04-17

I need help from an Expert. In my dedicated Windows 2003 Server, in IIS there's a thing called Bandwidth throttling. Well, I have a webpages with Flash movies that stream live video. Hence this question: If I "Limit the network bandwidth available to this Web site" will that also effect live video streams coming and going through the web pages therein?

In other words, lets say I put a put a Limit of 1 GB, does that mean once the total of data--all data, to include audio/video streams--that went through that domain, is reached, no more data--not even audio/video streams from my Red5 server--will be passed through that domain?

    If you set the bandwidth restriction at the site level then all content that is served from the folders that make up that site will count towards the limit.

    If you have a HTML file in a site that has a movie file embedded in it from another site or server, it will NOT count towards the bandwidth limit because it is not being served from that site.

    Okay, I was wondering because a Flash File that plays a stream from Red5 or FMS is getting that stream from the Red5 or FMS server. That's why I was wondering if it still counted in the Bandwidht trottling setting of the domain on which the file sits.

    I guess I should probably just test it, with a really low setting of say 5mb or something like that.

    It will only count the bandwidth from the stream if the file is physically hosted on the site. If you like or embed files that are physically located on different servers, those wouldn't be counted in the bandwidth totals.
