If you know you have a low-bandwidth link on your network and want to avoid taxing it, take advantage of Lumeta's packet rate control. This feature enables you to throttle a packet rate for an interface to the value you specify.
The recommended packet rate is between 500 and 5000.
The packet-rate pertains to the interface level (per interface, per system), which is to say the rate is per interface, not per collector.
To change an interface's packet rate, use the Lumeta command-line interface (CLI) command
system interface packetrate <n> where <n> is some integer for the packet rate.
When the packet rate changes, the notifications at your Lumeta GUI (Settings > Notifications > System tab) will be COLLECTOR_UPDATED event with the descriptor "Interface Packet Rate Changed." To see the current packet rate in the CLI, use the
system interface list <iface> command where <iface> is the name of the interface.

Consequences of non-compliance:
The communication among the Lumeta Command Center and one or more Lumeta Scouts is TLS/SSL-secured over port 443.

Lumeta's Consumption of Bandwidth
Lumeta disperses/distributes packets during network scans so that bandwidth impact is negligible; Lumeta scans generally go unnoticed by IDSs.
