I was wondering if someone could help me understand why our backup job going to tape is very slow.
Now our environment is setup with a Physical Veeam server and Proxy. From what I understand our Proxy is also our tape server and it is connected directly to our LTO6 tape drive via iSCSI. Now the connection between our proxy and the backup repositories is done by a 10GB fiber connection.
Therefore, I am not sure as to why It takes us about 12 hours to backup a 1.2TB server to tape and the processing rate for the job is about 30 MB/s.

Sorry for late reply but we ended up figuring out that our NAS device was our bottle neck. We had an exact spare unit, but with a higher performance drive and they made a huge difference in terms of the rate going to tape.

Thanks for updating the thread, Vinh! Glad the issue is found and resolved. By the way, The latest product version, VBR v9.5 was released last week and it has file to tape performance improved drastically.
