Multiply jobs

Post by Compaxo » Jul 18, 2019 7:40 am

Hi,

I'm a newby at veeam.
We Uses Nutanix AHV and wants to runs the backups with veeam which runs in a trail mode.

I discoverd the backup looks nice and fast.
I miss the job notifications but read that's a common problem which will be solved in a feauture release.

Another problem I have is that I can one backup 1 VM at a time
When I start a backupjob which contains multiply VM's each VM will be backup after the other.
When I start 2 backup jobs which contains one of more VM's hte second job will wait until the first one is finished.

I have the next problem with this.
I like to secure:
Most of the servers, without frequent changed data, one time in a week,
Servers with frequently changing data ones a day and
One (our main) server One time in a hour 24 hours a day

When I schedule this jobs the hourly running job conflicts with the daily and weekly ones and have to wait until they are ready

Is there a way to schedule more as one backup at a time.

Best regards,

Peter Vroegop

Hi Peter and welcome to the community!
Veeam Availability for Nutanix does provide a parallel processing: several jobs may run in parallel and several VMs can be backed up in parallel within a job. Default concurrency level is 3 VMs at a time)
How many CPU cores and GB RAM does the proxy have?
Also how many VMs and backup jobs do you have?
Thanks!

On your parallel processing, contact support as they will check your VM resources and assist it adding more parallelism.

Here is a description how to create VM for Proxy Appliance.
Note that the VM must meet the following requirements:
2 CPUs, 2 cores per CPU plus 1 CPU core for each additional concurrent task (default concurrency level: 3 VMs at a time).
4GB RAM plus 1 GB for each concurrent task.
Thanks
