This overrides the default threshold of 5 Mbps that triggers the dynamic​_throughtput​_optimization behavior, which enables the quick retry feature. Quick retry detects slow forward throughput while fetching an object, and attempts a different forward connection path to avoid congestion. This behavior can only be configured on your behalf by Akamai Professional Services.


Specifies the default target forward throughput in Mbps, ranging from 2 to 50 Mbps. If this time is exceeded during a connection attempt, quick retry is enabled and a different forward connection path is used.
