Is there a way to throttle message throughput to the smsc connected by a smpp bind ? (ie.make the traffic slower than what we are currently licensed for)

Hi Joel,


You need to manually edit the SMSGW.INI file, and add the following setting under the section header for the SMSC connection that you want to limit (e.g., under [SMPP - server:port]):


This setting can specify that the gateway will send no more than x messages per y seconds. If y is not specified, then the default is 1. For example, to limit a connection to 1 message every 5 seconds, specify MSCSendLimit=1/5. To limit a connection to 3 messages per second, specify SMSCSendLimit=3 or SMSCSendLimit=3/1.
