filecopy.request_delay (collection.cfg setting)
This option is the number of milliseconds to delay between copy requests when gathering for a filecopy collection. The default value is empty i.e. no delay between requests.
If you want to reduce the load on a target server when copying files you could set this to an appropriate value e.g.
The example above would delay for 1000ms (1 second) between requests.
This value can be overridden by the gather.slowdown.request_delay setting if a slowdown period has been specified.
