How can I control RMS data usage?
RMS provides its users with the possibility to set up custom device parameter update intervals or disable updates for some parameters entirely. This can help reduce monthly data usage for routers connected to the RMS. This article describes that process in detail: To change monitoring options for your device, go to the RMS web page, Left sidebar panel (Management → Devices), and click on the Devices submenu.
Move your mouse pointer to the top control Monitoring menu and select Set update period (Monitoring → Set update period).
Step by step instructions
- First, choose a device(s) for which the configuration will apply. If you select multiple devices, it will not display current parameters.
- Move your mouse pointer to the Monitoring top control menu and click "Set update period".
- After a new pop-up window should appear. Place checkmarks next to relevant parameters to set up custom monitoring intervals. You can set up the monitoring update frequency; on the right, you can set the time units for that setting.
- As you change these settings, the system will calculate an estimated monthly data usage value below in real-time.
At the top of your screen, you will get a notification in green text: Device updated.
