The FTP Store component provides this method to flow control the speed at which the data is transmitted. The purpose of the flow-control option is to provide means to manage the impact of FTP transmission may have on the transmission bandwidth from remote sites. The flow control knobs allow you to control the size of the buffer and the transmission interval of each buffer. Additional control is provided to test the flow control speed and provide an easy to use method to check the transmission speed.
To use the test feature the user must have access to the FTP site from the workstation. This feature establishes connection to the FTP site and transmits “dummy” data to the FTP site to test transmission bandwidth.
