Bacula - Limit Bandwidth

Changing this will affect all jobs:

FileDaemon {
  Name = localhost-fd
  Working Directory = /some/path
  Pid Directory = /some/path
  ...
  Maximum Bandwidth Per Job = 5Mb/s
}

Changing only for a specific Job:

Job {
  Name = locahost-data
  FileSet = FS_localhost
  Accurate = yes
  ...
  Maximum Bandwidth = 5Mb/s
  ...
}

Changing on a live job:

setbandwidth limit=1000 jobid=10
