At fist let me say I am new to the BaR and am currently trying to maximize the deployment on a very limited budget.
Here is my current Environment;
1 VNXe 3100 4TB San
1 Buffalo DN15000 16TB NAS Configured for iSCSI at 10TB (Is Isolated on VLAN for Host Connection)
2 ESXi 5.0 and 5.1 Running Essentials
1 VCenter Appliance
1 Backup and Replication Server Virtual Hosted on ESXi with the most resources available. (Coincidentally is the same host running the Target VM of the case ID.)
1 server hosting additional mail box stores for other Corporate Business Units. Machine Storage Size 1.6TB Registered 1.2TB Through VEEAM
When initiating the first Full Application Aware backup of this VM, I noticed a severe performance issue on the VM and Strange activity while monitoring the Performance of the VM Enviroment and select machines from VCenter.
VNXe encountered 2 IOP penalties during which e-mail stopped flowing for 15 minutes directly after the first penalty. The next penalty made an outage of over 30 minutes. In between these the mail flow continued but at a very - very slow pace.
I am not sure the BACKUP environment is configured properly. However the backup did complete successfully.
If anyone (New or Experienced) has seen this type of behavior, can you please send some advice?
