I seem to recall there being some parameter that limits the maximum speed. Perhaps you can find something like that in the documentation? Hopefully, someone who has more experience with CrashPlan will chime in.

I think he means how is he getting 217 Mbps when his upload stream is only 2Mbps. 

 

Most file backup programs, including Crashplan (which I use to backup my Home Server) start comparing files to backup with those you've already backed up. That, combined with the delay in information coming back may "trick" the system into reporting you've uploaded multiple (or even one big) file. That will make the average upload speed seem quite high. Check your network speeds (upload) in Task Manager to see more correctly what you're getting as actual throughput.

I was backing up once while on a hotel network and saw results like this. Thought they must have had some sort

of magical network until I realized what was going on.

 

Go to settings and then network to set your parameters.

as stated above it's just crashplan playing tricks with you, unless the fibre optic fairy came and visited your house in the night and gave you a fibre link.

Thanks timekills. Obviously I got it all wrong.

 

Do you know, timekills, does CrashPlan have a bandwidth limiting parameter?

 

It sure does.  Can be set for a max when you are on the system, and a different max when not in use.  Along of course with scheduled times.  I have mine setup to 1 if the system is in use and unlimited (5 Megs) when it is unused and to only run after 1am and stop at 8am.

Thanks pcdoc. I thought I recalled someone (probably you :) ) posting about it, and I thought this thread would be a good place to restate it... someone might find it useful.
