I have a replication job that every time it finishes it is applying the retention policy for one to two hours at most. This vm has a disk that is quite big, 1.2TB, not sure if it makes a difference.
Is it normal for this task to take so long? Is it due to being slow to remove the snapshot at the DR vCenter site?
If this is not normal I will open a support cas, however I wanted to see your opinion first as for my other jobs the retention policy takes only a couple of minutes.
