Configure Slow link speed

Configures the threshold value at which Offline Files considers a network connection to be “slow”. Any network speed below this value is considered to be slow. When a connection is considered slow Offline Files automatically adjust its behavior to avoid excessive synchronization traffic and will not automatically reconnect to a server when the presence of a server is detected. If you enable this setting you can configure the threshold value that will be used to determine a slow network connection. If this setting is disabled or not configured the default threshold value of 64000 bps is used to determine if a network connection is considered to be slow. Note: Use the following formula when entering the slow link value: [ bps / 100]. For example if you want to set a threshold value of 128000 bps enter a value of 1280.
