Feature request - Concurrent jobs options

Post by biga888 »


would it be possible to build in an option for limiting concurrent jobs?

Sometimes there is an issue with the backups where 1 takes longer than anticipated, and then other jobs start resulting in a slowdown jobs running into each other.
It would be nice to have an option to force Veeam to not start another job till its current one is finished. I have heard you can script this, but could this not be an option in preferences? Backup Exec has this option, and it works well.

Hello, we will consider adding this option in future releases. Thank you for your feedback. Please note that generally, we recommend to have as few jobs as possible, as this allows to take benefit of built-in deduplication.
