The performance is so slow, it's preventing days of backups across a number of Backup Copy Jobs:
Health Check durations:
- Code: Select all
Exchange Backup Copy Job: 11TB, 13 days (now disabled)
File Server Backup Copy Job 1: 5TB, 5 days (estimated)
File Server Backup Copy Jobs 2&3: 4TB, 3.5-4 days (estimated)
The Veeam servers are Cisco C240 M4s, with 2x Intel Xeon E5-2660v2, and 96GB RAM, fibre connected with MPIO
The device the Copy Jobs are stored on, is an EMC Data Domain 2500, fibre connected and fully loaded with DD boost
I've read warnings in a few places that Health Checks to dedup devices will be slower - but we can't tolerate performance which loses us so many backup copy cycles.
I've mentioned it in another thread - but the date of the Health Check appeared again this weekend, and I don't think we can leave it unchanged for another month.
Can anyone offer recommendations, to either:
a) optimize the Health Check performance
or perhaps more realistically
b) find a strategy, which doesn't require monthly Health Checks on the DD2500
