TL2000 - Weird throughput issue

Veeam Logoby JackFinlay » Wed Dec 20, 2017 5:40 pm

Hi All,

I'm seeing some strange throughput on my new tape library/drive (TL2000). It's connected directly via 12GB SAS to the Veeam Server.


It goes up and down, reaching the theoretical maximum of the tape drive (LTO6) @ 160MB/s, then drops down to roughly 15MB/s. And its very consistent how it does it. Testing with the IBM tape diagnostic tool reaches a sustained 140MB/s.

I have a support call open: 02410727

I was hoping to find someone else has experience the same issue and what they did to fix?

I think the best way would be to way till support team analyze debug logs, confirm your environment and then provide you with definitive answer. So, keep working with them. Thanks.
