Scalable Storage properties
The Scalable Storage Cloud Settings properties contain information about encryption, metering, bandwidth throttling, and network connections between the NetBackup hosts and your cloud storage provider.
The Scalable Storage properties appear only if the host is supported for cloud storage. See the NetBackup hardware compatibility list for your release available through the following URL:
The Scalable Storage properties apply to currently selected media servers.
Table: Scalable Storage Cloud Settings host properties describes the properties.

Determines how often NetBackup gathers connection information for reporting purposes. NetBackup OpsCenter uses the information that is collected to create reports. The value is set in seconds. The default setting is 300 seconds (5 minutes). If this value to zero, metering is disabled.
The time, in seconds, between measurements of bandwidth usage. The larger this value, the less often NetBackup checks to determine the bandwidth in use.
If this value is zero, throttling is disabled.
Clickto specify additional settings for throttling.
The default maximum number of concurrent jobs that the media server can run for the cloud storage server.
This value applies to the media server, not to the cloud storage server. If you have more than one media server that can connect to the cloud storage server, each media server can have a different value. Therefore, to determine the total number of connections to the cloud storage server, add the values from each media server.
If you configure NetBackup to allow more jobs than the number of connections, NetBackup fails any jobs that start after the number of maximum connections is reached. Jobs include both backup and restore jobs.
You can configure job limits per backup policy and per storage unit.
NetBackup must account for many factors when it starts jobs: the number of concurrent jobs, the number of connections per media server, the number of media servers, and the job load-balancing logic. Therefore, NetBackup may not fail jobs exactly at the maximum number of connections. NetBackup may fail a job when the connection number is slightly less than the maximum, exactly the maximum, or slightly more than the maximum.
If the media server is not a CloudCatalyst storage server, a value over 100 is generally not needed.
