Testing WAN Accelerator

Veeam Logoby Blue407 » Mon Feb 13, 2017 11:49 am

I have an existing deployment of Veeam 9, we recently installed a new server on a WAN site.
I have configured WAN Accelerators for both locations but I'm not sure the backup jobs are using them.

How do I make sure jobs are configured to use the WAN Accelerators and how can I test that?

I have both backup to disk jobs and replication jobs running every night from the remote site to the local backup server.

Hello Paul,
WAN acceleration works for backup copy and replication jobs only (backup job is supposed to be onsite). You should edit the jobs` settings to use WAN accelerators.
Once the job run, you will see they are used in the jobs Action pane.
Thanks!

Thanks for the prompt response.

We have no local backup facilities at the remote site, just one physical server.

Is there any way to improve performance further? (Its not bad, but I'm sure it could be better)

You need to review job statistics to have a clue what to work on first. I would start with bottleneck analysis.
