Enhancement request -- job priority

The application running on these servers doesn't like the stun a snapshot creates, so they set aside a backup window during specific hours to allow a backup to run when the stun can be tolerated. Outside this window a stun will interrupt critical processes on the servers.

I see what you're saying with regards to backup windows, but that seems to be an awful complicated way to work around a simple problem. I could stand up dedicated proxy and repository servers just for this job, but that's an overly complicated solution as well.

A simple high-priority flag (for an individual VM in a job, or for the entire job) would make this much easier.

I see the point, you need to make sure the job gets resources once it starts.

Apologies for bumping an old thread but are there any plans to implement this in a future version?

I have the same issue as Chuck above, I have a some servers that runs various maintenance and batch task overnight and there is only a short period of time where we can do the stun for backup but we are finding that starting the job at this time is not sufficient to guarantee access to resources.

Thanks

Hi Barry, cannot say anything regarding the plans, but in addition to the workaround mentioned above, you can set up a dedicated proxy server assigned exclusively for this job.

This is a Hyper-V host using on-host processing, the resource contention is on the repository and having moved to a SOBR having to add in a dedicated repository for this particular jobs seems like going backwards!
