Difference in backup processing rate

Veeam Logoby peters. » Fri Jun 17, 2016 3:12 pm

We are running BR 8.0.0.2084 to backup few windows 2008 VM's in a chain, one after another (not in paralell). All VMs are stored on the same Dell MD3400 datastore.

One VM incremental backup is being processed with rate:
16. 6. 2016 21:49:09 :: Hard disk 1 (50,0 GB) 1,3 GB read at 4 MB/s [CBT]
16. 6. 2016 21:49:31 :: Hard disk 2 (100,0 GB) 21,4 GB read at 11 MB/s [CBT]

while another
16. 6. 2016 22:39:46 :: Hard disk 1 (50,0 GB) 1,7 GB read at 44 MB/s [CBT]
16. 6. 2016 22:40:13 :: Hard disk 2 (125,0 GB) 2,8 GB read at 17 MB/s [CBT]
16. 6. 2016 22:41:04 :: Hard disk 3 (40,0 GB) 643,0 MB read at 57 MB/s [CBT]

Used method is "Using backup proxy VMware Backup Proxy for disk Hard disk [hotadd]".
The "Enable storage latency control" is disabled.

Is there something obvious which can be causing such a big difference in the processing rate? I was thinking about disk type: Thick vs Thin provisioned, but the second server has disk=thick lazy zeroed, disk2&3 are both thin. First server is thin.
Both VMs are on the same ESXi 5.5.

Thanks,
Peter

Hi,

Have you tried to swap the jobs' start time and compare the stats again? I susupect that some other activity is taking place at the storage somewhere close to 21:40-21:50. Also, have you considered upgrading VBR to the latest version?

Thanks
