How do I reduce the bandwidth consumed by UploaderWiz?

Answer:

UploaderWiz is designed to upload files to Azure as quickly as possible. For some people with low bandwidth, this can cause a strain on other operations while the upload is being performed.

You can reduce the bandwidth consumption of UploaderWiz with one of the following command line options:

-threads 1

Adding this option in the command line will reduce the number of threads allocated by UploaderWiz. If you allow fewer threads to upload data at the same time, less bandwidth will be consumed.

OR

-threads 1 –noblock true

Adding this option in the command line will not only reduce the number of threads allocated, but will also prevent UploaderWiz from splitting the download of files into blocks and spawning the upload through multiples threads. This will slow the upload even more but it will reduce bandwidth consumption dramatically.
