Shutdown Backup Proxy after backup job

Post by SYildiz »

Hi to all of you,

I'm new here and first of all I just wanna say hello - my name is Serkan and I'm a system engineer. so far so good.

I have written a PS1 script (in combination with a bat-file) which is able to shutdown a vm.
The script works as I opened it with the BackAdmin user in CMD but as a post-job script it ends up with a "time out".

Maybe some of you could help?!

The scripts:
stop_bvm02.bat:

Code: Select all

C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -noe -c ". \"C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\PowerCLI\Scripts\Initialize-PowerCLIEnvironment.ps1\" $true; . \"C:\Scripts\stop_bvm02.ps1\""
exit /b 0
stop_bvm02.ps1:

Code: Select all

$vCenter = "XXXXXX"
$User = "XXXXXXXX"
$Password = "XXXXXXX"
$VM = "bvm02"

Write-Output "Connect vCenter..."
Connect-VIServer -Server $vCenter -Protocol https -User $User -Password $Password

Write-Output "stop bvm02"
stop-vm -vm $VM -Confirm:$false

Write-Output "Disconnect vCenter..."
Disconnect-VIServer -Server $vCenter -Confirm:$false
exit
The idea was to reduce the ressource (CPU & RAM) and shutdown the backup proxies after the backup job is finished.
Is this possible? Or have some of you any other ideas?

Thank you in advance!

Best reguards,

Serkan

When I select the "stop_bvm02.ps1" as a post-job script it ends up with

Code: Select all

Your proxy shouldn't be doing anything once the backup job has finished. Personally I would leave it switched on as it will be less hassle to keep switching it on and off.

Hi,

I'm asking myself about shutdown proxy after backup job.
I have multiple VM Proxy in my infrastructure, around 30 (one per ESXi).
Each proxy can execute 8 simultaneous tasks, with each one 8vCPU allocate in the VM.

I'm trying to identify CPU ready issue on the esxi, even if proxy do "nothing" after the backup job, there is 8 CPU allocate, ready to use.
Does this really have any impact on vmware performance ? what is your opinion on this ?

thank you
Alexandre

Hi Alexandre,
Does this really have any impact on vmware performance?
I assume it depends on your oversubscription ratio (if you have one) and some other factors like VM/Resource Pool CPU usage limitations and reservations.
I'd check for values of these first.

Thanks,
Oleg
