Throttling Fog multicast, is it possible?
I’ve just started testing FOG to image a computer lab at work. The problem I am having is that when I try to multicast even a couple of computers the rest of the network loses internet access. Or network infrastructure is outsourced and old so I don’t have access to the switches to check if they are configured correctly. Anyway, in the past I have used Norton ghost to multicast without swamping the network by throttling the multicast speed.

My question is, does FOG have a similar option? I have googled around and havent found one.
I quick Google search for “Throttle Linux network connection” came up with this result - even if Fog can’t throttle, if you can slow down the speed of the server’s NIC it should accomplish the same result. You also might ask whoever the network is outsourced to if some form of QoS can be setup (so it can run at full speed unless someone else needs it).
