Per title, the GUI uses all my bandwidth and I can't browse anymore or use another application that requires internet connection. How do I resolve this?
The GUI uses all my bandwidth and I can't browse anymore or use another application that requires internet connection
monerod takes a lot of bandwidth during the initial sync. If you're unable to browse or use any applications that require internet connection, you can limit
monerod's bandwidth as follows:
Go to the
Settingspage of the GUI.
Look for the
daemon startup flagsbox.
Add this line ->
Exit the GUI and make sure to stop the daemon as well.
Restart the GUI + daemon.
Step 4 & 5 are needed for the flag from step 3 to take effect. Note that
--limit-rate 500 will limit the bandwidth to 500 kB/s. Note that you can tweak the parameter / flag yourself by adjusting the value.
