How to limit file size in TM Master?

You can limit the max file size for files added in TM Master and to be replicated by going to Unit (Ship) -> Details -> Settings -> Max size replicated files:

This setting determines how big a file added in TM will also replicate to the other side. Files added that exceed this limit, will result in the below message:

There is no general answer as to how big this limit should be. It all depends on the bandwidth of the installation on this unit. Some units should have a limit of 100 KB and some have no problems with a 5 MB limit. Consult your IT department for assistance in setting this limit.

For advanced users:

It is also possible to limit the size of replication files sent by the email servers.

Under System -> TM Exchange client -> Settings -> Max filesize:

This settings is activated when you have replication files over the set limit in the COMM folder.

Let's say you have a limit of 1 MB, but in the COMM folder, there's a replication file that's 10 MB's big. This setting will then cause TM Exchange to split the file in to 10 split files, each one 1 MB in size, before sending them to their destination.

Upon arrival, TM Exchange on the other side will reassemble the split files in to one replication file of 10 MB's.
