Limiting the Number Tasks isn't right working

Post by helly.wu » Jun 30, 2016 1:06 am

Hi , All

Limiting the Number Tasks isn't right working .

For example : Limiting the Number of Concurrent Tasks was set 8 , but the backup process show only 4 VM Guest was backup .
The proxy server was set 8*2=16vCPU,and each VM guest have one Vmdk disk .

Why not 8 VM guest was backup at the same time ?

How many backup jobs have been started simultaneously? How many VMs do those jobs have? How many virtual disks combined? Also, what is maximum concurrent tasks number specified in the target repository settings? Thanks.

And what mode does the said proxy server use (Direct SAN/Direct NFS, Hot-Add, NDB)? Thanks.

Are there any other configured limits, such as on the repository?

Are all these VMs on the same host or datastore?

Is there a message similar to this one in job statistics? If so, play with the regkey mentioned there and see how it goes for you. Thanks.
