VHD migration to Azure bandwitdh

I'm migrating VHDs from on-premise to Azure over a 50Mb connection. The problem is that if I do this during the day, it's almost saturating the pipe with traffic. Is there a way to throttle the amount of traffic of the migration? I know you can control the amount of traffic sent from DPM to Azure but I don't see any specifications regarding the transfer of VHDs to Azure.


Thank you!

So what you are saying is that you are using the throttling settings in DPM, or want to use it?
That should normally have influence on all traffic sent to Azure, you can't separate this for only VHD's I think...

Which version of DPM and Windows server are you using?

Sorry for creating confusion about my question. I was bringing DPM into discussion as an example of throttling traffic to Azure. Basically, my question is how to throttle the amount off traffic created by VHD migrations through the Azure Powershell cmdlet.


Thanks!

I see ... Now I'm with you...

Well, I think a way to do this is to implement a policy like Quality of Service on your machine ... This way it's throttled at the network interface ...

This means other traffic might be impacted as well, so that might be an issue?
