Feature request - disable Storage Latency Control restore

Veeam Logoby m.novelli » Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:58 am

Hi guys, today I was running a full VM restore and I noticed that Veeam was throttling the restore speed due to Storage Latency Control configuration

I have a request: an option to disable throttling during restore jobs

Thanks,

Marco

Hi,

One question: why disabling Storage Latency Control manually before starting a restore is not an option for you?

Thanks

Because it's easy to forget to disable Storage Latency Control before restore / enable after restore, you know

Today I've discovered that I forgot to disable Storage Latency Control after 2 hours of a running restore... what a shame.

It works exactly the same way for the opposite direction - it's easy to forget to disable the option before restore and thus create an unwanted load on the production. I believe that a prompt that warns about Latency Control and suggests to temporarily disable it would be enough, wouldn't it?

I'm ok with such a feature as long as the same option automatically re-enables it once the restore is completed, otherwise the main reason for having it enabled (protect the production environment from excessive load during backups) is lost.
