Group Policy slow link detection

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy


Defines a slow connection for purposes of applying and updating Group Policy.

If the rate at which data is transferred from the domain controller providing a policy update to the computers in this group is slower than the rate specified by this policy, the system considers the connection to be slow.

The system's response to a slow policy connection varies among policies. The program implementing the policy can specify the response to a slow link. Also, the policy processing policies in this folder let you override the programs' specified responses to slow links.

To use this policy, in the Connection speed box, type a decimal number between 0 and 4,294,967,200 (0xFFFFFFA0), indicating a transfer rate in kilobits per second. Any connection slower than this rate is considered to be slow. If you type 0, all connections are considered to be fast.

If you disable this policy or do not configure it, the system uses the default value of 500 kilobits per second.

This policy appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. The policy in Computer Configuration defines a slow link for policies in the Computer Configuration folder. The policy in User Configuration defines a slow link for policies in the User Configuration folder.
