    Throttling upload speed in Lightroom CC

    jamisonS Level 1

      I'm using Lightroom CC on an iMac, and completed the library migration. When I allow LrCC to freely upload my collection, it saturates my upload bandwidth of my cable modem which means my internet becomes unusable. I've got thousands of photos to sync which will take hours/days, so how can I throttle the upload speed that Lighrtroom CC uses to trickle my collection to the cloud?


      I've adjusted the speed in the CC app itself, but that appears to have no bearing on what Lightroom CC uses.

          There isn't a feature to control bandwidth at this point in time, but it would make a great feature request at Lightroom CC | Photoshop Family Customer Community

            I have the same issue and would love to see this addressed. I'm trying to migrate to Lightroom CC but the process is painfully slow and it absolutely kills my network. I cannot use the internet while I am trying to sync and it has been over 24 hours now. I don't know how I will ever migrate over. I am beyond frustrated now. When LR is syncing, I get about 1mbps down and 0.5 mbps up. As soon as I pause sync and quit LR CC, I go back to 65mpbs down and 6mbps up.

              Would be a good feature request indeed. One thing to do now if you have problems with your internet saturating if one app uses upload bandwidth is to get a cable modem that has more channels (your speed description looks like typical cable internet with asymmetric upload and download speeds). This works wonders if your internet does this. Another thing is to use a router that supports QoS (quality of service) but usually a better cable modem will fix it already. QoS will also automatically prevent this from happening though if your cable modem is not up to the task but without fixing the fundamental issue you will always have reduced speeds overall. If your network is well done you should not be able to kill your download speed by uploading something. They should be completely independent.
