Replication - Applying retention policy

Veeam Logoby obroni » Wed Jan 25, 2017 1:19 pm

Hi All,

Does anybody know if there is a registry key which controls how many concurrent snapshot remove operations can be carried out when Veeam is removing retention points at the end of the job? It seems that it will only issue 4 at a time currently and I would like to be able to increase this.

Hi Nick, you're correct, the number of concurrently removed snapshots is limited by 2 per single host and 4 in total for the entire cluster. Both numbers are configurable with the help of the MaxConcurrentDeletingSnapshotsForHost and
MaxConcurrentDeletingSnapshotsForCluster registry values (DWORD).

Awesome, thanks for that. I was checking this KB

https://www.veeam.com/kb2182

Not sure if they are worth including in there?

I believe the article contains just the most commonly used values, while these two are definitely not.
