Bandwidth Regulator In Zerto Version 6.5 Is Slowing/Halting Syncs And Replication

KB Number:
000002271

Symptoms:
In version 6.5.x, Bandwidth Regulator will limit VRAs to transmit at only a couple of bytes per second no matter what the setting is set to in Site Settings.

Cause:
Bandwidth regulator is not allowing available bandwidth to distribute across VRAs correctly so some VRA replication is stalled.

Bandwidth Regulator logs will show some VRAs have a "BwLim" of a very small number (in bytes per second):
