i would like to reach greater speed in my backups in these particular situation:
-cluster M (5 hosts ESXi 5.1, all current patches applied) where VMs (all Linux) to be saved are running; Datastores are NFS datastores on NetApp systems
-cluster P (3 hosts, same as before) where the VM with Veeam B&R is running
All backups are performed in network Mode, the speed is around 40 MB/s, the target is another NetApp storage. Bottleneck is always Source (i.e1.: Load: Source 99% > Proxy 31% > Network 2% > Target 0%, ie2: Load: Source 97% > Proxy 28% > Network 2% > Target 2% ).
I've already set the registry key to avoid CBT reset on disk size changes, because my hosts are patched.
I cannot add Proxies on cluster M because i have no windows machine running there.
Is there something i can try, or i have to wait for Veeam B&R v.9 and use the new feature that allows to read directly from the NetApps via the new Veeam NFS client?
thanks in advance
