Title (EN) BACKGROUND NETWORK BANDWIDTH SHARING BEHIND GATEWAY DEVICES
(FR) PARTAGE DE LARGEUR DE BANDE DE RESEAU DE BASE A L'ARRIERE DE DISPOSITIFS PASSERELLES
Abstract:
(EN) Example embodiments allow a local network client to access information about a shared gateway to determine its actual amount of bandwidth consumption. The client can also obtain the total capacity of such shared gateway. Using its knowledge of its own bandwidth consumption, it can determine the other local network clients' usage of the shared gateway. With all of this information, i.e., total capacity of the shared gateway, the actual usage of the shared gateway, and the usage by other clients within the local network, the client can adjust or throttle background file transfers in order to keep the actual data transfers across the shared gateway within a reasonable percentage of the total capacity available. That is, a client will give priority to other local network computing machines' usage of the shared gateway by adjusting data transfers for its own background transfer system based on usage across a shared gateway
(FR) Sous différents exemples, accès par un client de réseau local à une information concernant une passerelle partagée pour en déterminer la consommation effective de largeur de bande. Le client peut aussi connaître la capacité totale de ce type de passerelle partagée. A partir de la consommation propre de largeur de bande, on peut déterminer l'utilisation de la même passerelle par les autres clients qui la partagent. A partir de l'information globale, à savoir capacité totale de la passerelle partagée, utilisation effective de ladite passerelle et utilisation par les autres clients de la même passerelle, le client peut régler ou réduire les transferts de fichier de base de manière à maintenir les transferts de données effectifs sur la passerelle partagée dans les limites d'un pourcentage raisonnable de la capacité totale disponible. Le client peut ainsi donner la priorité à d'autres ordinateurs de réseau local utilisant la même passerelle en réglant les transferts de données pour son propre système de transfert de base, d'après l'utilisation relative à la passerelle partagée.
