A Profile is a set of preferences for all clients in the group to which a profile applied. You can manage your profiles using the “Add, Remove, Edit, Duplicate” buttons. Here is a table of all profile settings and their definitions.





Enable API


Enables/disables usage of API on clients

Limit LAN bandwidth


Applies the limit configured in the current schedule to local traffic as well

Use tracker

Yes Enables/disables peer discovery using the tracker server

LAN broadcast


Enables/disables peer discovery in LAN using broadcast / multicast traffic. You can disable this option if multicast traffic is not allowed in your network

Delete to trash


Enables/disables storing deleted files in the folder Archive

Known hosts

<not set>

Hosts should be entered as a single line of IP:port pairs (or DNS name:port pairs*) comma-separated (no other delimiters allowed)

Delete files absent on RW peer


Forces Read-only agents to delete local files from the share, if these files are absent on Read-Write agent

Encrypt on LAN


Enables encryption for all Connect Agent data flowing in LAN

Disk operations are low priority


Sets all disk read-write operations to low priority

Max archive file size (MB)


Defines the maximum archive size

Rescan interval (sec)


This option sets the folder rescan interval for changes possibly missed with OS file notifications

Max time difference (sec)


Maximum time difference allowed between peers. If the actual time difference exceeds this value, Agent won't transfer data and will report error to Connect Management Console

Sending buffer size (MB)


Amount of memory allocated to outgoing data buffer

Receiving buffer size (MB)


Amount of memory allocated to incoming data buffer

Max torrent metadata size (MB)


Amount of memory allocated to metadata.

Max log size (MB)


Maximum log size allowed before Agent rotates local debug log

Log time to live (days)


Number of days the debug logs will be stored

Enable debug profiler


Starts recording data for speed issue analysis. Data is stored in profiler.dat in storage folder, rotated every 10 minutes. Requires Agent restart to activate.

Max archive file age (days)


Amount of time a file will be stored in the archive. Setting this option to "0" forces Agent to keep archived files forever.

Rescan tracker and relay interval (sec)


Controls how often Agent checks for the info about available trackers and relay servers. Can be adjusted to prevent HDD from low-power mode

External port


External (i.e. relative to NAT) port value. "0" indicates automatic port detection

Save settings interval (sec)


Controls how often settings are saved to storage. Can be adjusted to prevent HDD from low-power mode

Bind port


Specifies default listening port for Connect Agents.

Bind interface

<not set>

Specifies network interface which will be used by Agent. Can be:
 - a text name of an interface for Linux and OS X clients (for example: eth0, bind0)
 - a MAC address for Windows OS (for example 08:00:27:17:a0:ba).
 - an network range (for example, for all NICs with IPs starting with 192.168)
If not specified, Agent will get default interface. If specified interface is not available, Agent will pick up default, interface too. To prevent it, set the "Use bind interface only" value to "yes"

Use bind interface only


Forces Agent to only connect to interface specified in "Bind interface" parameter. If no such interface found, Agent will not bind to a default interface and will stay unconnected.

Enable journaling


Enables/disables journaling of file changes/file moving (must be 'no' for NAS to be able to sleep)

Allow LAN connections


Enables/disables connections with local peers

Custom trackers

<not set>

Trackers should be entered as a single line of IP:port pairs (or DNS name:port pairs*) semicolon-separated (no other delimiters allowed)

Custom tracker modes

Load balancing

Controls the mode which is used by Agent if multiple trackers are defined.
"Load balancing" - agent will connect to only one tracker.
"High availability" - agent will connect to all trackers available.

Keep folder data

Remove from agent

Defines what will happen with files after admin removes job from agent's group or from Management Console:
"Remove from agent" means that files will just stop syncing and will remain on the workstation.
"Delete from disk" means that files will be physically deleted from workstation, skipping Trash bin and Archive.

Overwrite any changed files (Sync job only)


Specifies if Agent will overwrite changed files / download again deleted files in read-only folders. If set to "No", changed files will no longer get updates and deleted files won't be re-downloaded from other Agents.

Transfer peers limit


Specifies the maximum number of agents that can connect per job.

Synchronize posix acl


Synchronizes POSIX permissions including owner and owner group:
"By id", will set proper owner and group ID after file and folder synchronization.
"By name", will attempt to set same username as on seeding peer, regardless of actual UID.

Synchronize NTFS permissions


"By DACL” will synchronize user’s SID and permissions
"By owner group", will sync same as for “DACL” but also will synchronize file’s owner and owner group.

Max chunk size


In bytes. Sets the maximum size of a transfer unit.

Choke peers


Forces downloading peers to stop transfer for a random time if speed becomes very slow.

Peer queue factor


Integer. Factor multiplies current bandwidth to automatically determine requests queue size. Increase it on networks with high latency. Max is 10.

Advanced preallocate


Allows Agent to write data faster to hard drive. Agent shall run as admin or System.

Worker thread count


Tells agent how many CPU cores to use during indexing. "0" means " use all cores available". Decreasing the value limits the core usage for agent.

Agent resources update interval


The interval in seconds when agents send their status update to MC. The larger is the interval, the lesser MC is loaded.

Unbuffered disk I/O No When option disabled, Agent will use OS cache for synced files.
Ignore symlinks No

Agents will skip symbolic links during transfer, these won't be synced.

Skip locked files (Transfer jobs) No

If set "Yes", files will be skipped and not transferred. Agent will not attempt to transfer them again until job is stopped and launched again. This option also removes locked file error from UI.


NOTE: If you set the “Keep folder data” to “Delete from disk”, Resilio will actually delete files from clients with this profile when you remove the folder from their group or remove the folder from the Connect Management Console. This action is not reversible and files won’t be available in Archive.
