Speed of Restores

Post by homerjnick » May 03, 2016 10:15 am

My Veeam B&R 9.0U1 server is physical with local boot drive...it is also connected to a N Series SAN via ISCSI...copying files to and from the SAN is about 110 MB/s yet when I initiate an Endpoint restore and select the option to copy to a different folder and choose the local disk of the server I get speeds of about 2MB/s and then it starts to drop as the copy carries on....

Can't figure out why it is so poor when normal file transfer to and from the SAN are good as is copying to and from the boot disk of our server yet restores/copy from Endpoint are dreadful.

Is the restore going over a different network controller?

Veeam server has three NIC's...one on the LAN and two dedicated for ISCSI...I'm simply initiating a restore and selecting "Copy To" and saving out to the local disk of the Veeam server...

So I'm not actually doing a restore to the server that hosted the backup data in the first place, I'm simply restoring it first to the Veeam box which I then manually copy to the backed up server when my users are out of the system I'm restoring.

As I say what is confusing me is copying to and from the connected ISCSI SAN and copying to and from local boot disk of Veeam server is as fast as I expect yet Endpoint restores are way too slow...

Hi,
yet restores/copy from Endpoint are dreadful
May I ask you how fast is your backup to SAN?

Thank you.

Where can I see the actual speed of the backup for Endpoint? The actual backup is fairly fast but without stats I can't relay any to you.

In VB&R Console you see no stats and in the details of last nights job there are no speed stats...

Nick,

Thanks! Can I ask you to submit a support case - we need to check the debug logs. Please do not forget to include the case ID in this thread.
