VEEAM Guest File Indexing Wears SSD

Post by dc-fan » Jul 01, 2019 1:54 pm

Hello,

i have Veeam V&R installed on a physcial Machine with RAID10 SSD.
So far so good. From time to time, the Veeam Guest Catalog Service Starts and works for DAYS without stopping.
When i stop the Service and start it again manually, everything is fine.

BUT:
It seems that this Service WRITES TONs of GB or even Terabytes on my SSD RAID Array, so now the third time after i noticed and stopped the Indexing, i saw on the SSD-Monitoring ( INTEL DC S3520 ) that the Temperature was extremely high and i lost some Percent of Endurance. What the Hell Is Veeam doing and how can i stop this?


Any Tipps?
For Now i stopped the Guest Catalog Service ( not using any VMs on this Server), should that be enough?

Hello Florian,

Veeam Guest Catalog Service within Veeam B&R server collects index data for all backup jobs and stores this data locally, while Veeam Guest Catalog within Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager collects the data from all Veeam B&R catalogs. Can you please elaborate if you have Veeam Enterprise Manager installed together with Veeam B&R on the same machine? Thanks!

Any chance you are doing any large files-to-tape jobs?

Joe
