NomadBranch UI feedback and actions
Feedback and actions in this dialog are:
|Feedback and actions||Description|
|Package ID||Name of the download package.|
The cached files progress bar shows the percentage of the total number of files in the package that have been downloaded.
In this example, approximately a 92% of the files in the package have been downloaded. The figures at the end of the progress bar show this is exactly 263 files out of 283.
The cached bytes progress bar shows the percentage of the total number of bytes in the package that have been downloaded.
In this example, approximately a 26% of the total package has been downloaded. The figures at the end of the progress bar show this is exactly 188 MB out of 708 MB.
This field identifies the source of the download.
In this example, the package is being downloaded using HTTP from the share, SMS_DP_SMSPKG$
The work rate slider determines the percentage of available bandwidth to use for the download. The default work rate is 80%.
For example, if you drag the slider all the way to the left (1%), it improves network availability as Nomad uses only 1% of the available bandwidth, but the drawback is that it increases the duration of the download.
You can configure intra-day work rates (using MaxWorkRates) for the client to maximize the use of available bandwidth over the course of a day. Work rates only apply to transfers from a DP not to P2P transfers within a LAN, hence, it does not apply to Single Site Download (SSD) downloads.
|Pause Job||Pauses a download in the queue or resumes it.|
|Cancel Job||Cancels a download in the queue.|
