Hi
Does 9.5 now allow for parallel processing on a GFS media pool?
Thanks.

Hi!
No, you still cannot enable parallel processing for GFS media pools.

However, this feature is definitely on our radar. So, it's not like we keep turning a blind eye to it. Thanks.

Amount of changes this feature brings makes it a feature of new release, not of new update. Thanks.

[MERGED] GFS media pool parallel processing

Veeam Logoby tzmueller » Wed Feb 08, 2017 7:58 pm

Hello, I am requesting the ability for parallel processing of backups with the GFS media pool.

In my environment I need the ability to properly have GFS pools and media sets for data exp. Normal media pools do not give me the flexibility that GFS offers but does have Parallel processing.

I have a large tape library with 10 LTO 7 drives, not being to have parallel processing makes the backup to tapes very slow and inefficient.

Thanks

Thank you for your feedback. This feature has requested before, but for now we cannot provide any updates in regards to when the feature will be implemented.

In my opinion, this is something VEEAM has to focus on and add this feature as soon as possible. We migrated our tape jobs to VEEAM B&R and this is one of nasty surprises we ran into. GFS media pool is a very good but poorly implemented concept. Due to the shortcomings of the implementation, it requires workarounds that add chaos in the backup process.

Thank you. Eventually we hope to get this functionality, and at least Veeam is responsive on the forum and opened for discussion. This is a valuable thing.
