Hi, just to revive this thread.
Using file level (copy) task I'm currently restoring 25GB files (47,000 files, 5300 folders) and I'm getting 2 MB/s. So its going to take about 4hrs.
This is to recover a ransomware attack. We use both Veeam and Commvault, Commvault is much quicker restoring so this isn't a OS specific thing, its a Veeam performance thing.
Looking at the data flow, the restore accesses the vbk and vib on the backup repository, it then gets sent to the B&R master server that the file explorer is running from, and then it gets sent back to the guest server. Wouldn't it be better if the files went straight from the repository/proxy to the guest, rather than going around the houses?
I was thinking maybe its the slow RAID6 repository with forward incrimentals, but reading the forums it seems 2 MB/s is the norm for these kinds of restores, and even if I had more IO performance it wouldn't matter.
