Configure multiple Bandwidth Throttling windows.

Configure multiple Bandwidth Throttling windows.

Context:

A very large workload must be migrated, which will take multiple days for the Full Migration/Replication to complete.
It is critical for the client to not impact users on the network at any time, and users on the server during business hours.

Here we need to:

- Limit the bandwidth used by PlateSpin to never exceed a given value (e.g.: that the migration does not use more than 500 Mbps).

- But also limit to the lowest the bandwidth used by PlateSpin during a specific timeframe (e.g.: 1 Mbps).

Solution:

Add an option to add multiple Bandwidth Throttling windows (e.g.: limit to 500 Mbps from 00:00am to 06:00am, limit to 1 Mbps from 06:00am to 06:00pm, limit to 500 Mbps from 06:00pm to 11:59pm).

I think the current day/time settings are sufficient but there should be a global throttling rate for the PSM server. PSM dynamically determines the rate for each job based on the number of active replications so that the total rate is not exceeded.

Even better if the PTM Connector could also handle this so that throttling could be applied dynamically across several load-balanced PSM servers.

I think this particular option helps a lot.
