The Link Management tab allows the user to access advanced functions. The max packet size control allows an application to control the maximum packet size that the software can receive. The Bandwidth Limit control, will place an upper bound on the amount of aggregate bandwidth the camera may use for image data. Of course, each individual packet associated with image data must (by definition) be sent at the full link speed but over a longer period of time, the amount of overall bandwidth consumed by the camera, will not exceed this limit. This feature may be particularly useful, if you plan on using multiple cameras on a single bus, or connecting the camera onto a bus that has another high throughput device.


How to Manipulate the Controls

Max Packet Size


This feature allows an application to control the maximum packet size that the software can receive. When the camera supports this feature the default status is "Auto", this will query the setup to see what packet size is supported on the camera and NIC(network interface card). You can also uncheck "Auto" and select either 1500 or 9000 (Jumbo Frames).



Bandwidth Limit (Mbps)


When enabled, this feature will place an upper bound on the amount of aggregate bandwidth the camera may use for image data. Of course, each individual packet associated with image data must (by definition) be sent at the full link speed but over a longer period of time, the amount of overall bandwidth consumed by the camera, will not exceed this limit. This feature may be particularly useful, if you plan on using multiple cameras on a single bus, or connecting the camera onto a bus that has another high throughput device.
