Throttling backup throughput for baclient

Hi is there anyways for the baclient to throttle the backup throughput down to 1 Gb / 100 MB per sec using the baclient option file?

I am trying to run a client backup that runs extremely fast 200-400 MB/s but my diskpool is small it's only 3 TB and it is filling up the stgpool faster than i can run migrations to the next pool (tape). If it can keep the speed down to a steady 100 MB/s i will be able to leave it running for several hours to finish the first initial full without having to stop the backup. I should be able to handle the incrementals thereafter any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you

You could point that node to a different management class for that fisrt backup that goes directly to tape and after return to the original management class.

Other than that, the only way to slow down the backup is to do everything against the performance recommendations in the manual.
