I have antivirus server at DC which is used for updating client at Branch.But problem is that at Branch side i have 128 Kb Link.In the morning while updating antivirus my bandwidth is choked up completely.
Is there any workaround for avoiding this kind of problem?
"Is there any workaround for avoiding this kind of problem?"
There may be. Possible solutions depend on your equipment and logical topology.
For instance, if only the DC and branch exchanged traffic, and if your equipement supported it, a hiearchal policy at the DC shaping for 128 Kbps, with the subordinate policy providing the AV update traffic a minimal bandwidth guarantee might do the trick.
shape average 128000
bandwidth percent 1
If other sites could also send traffic to the branch (common on MPLS clouds), then you would likely need to work with the MPLS vendor's QoS. For such, you would classify AV update to go into the least bandwidth guaranteed class. (BTW, you might still need to priorization QoS at the DC.)
If the issue is only as you describe, you define the policy at the DC for output. If there is no branch-to-branch communication, you would have a class statement to match each branch (normally you match against destination block address), otherwise you just deprioritize the AV traffic into a single class and utilize your MPLS vendor's QoS model so that such traffic is also deprioritized by them as it exits the MPLS cloud.
