[MERGED] Bottleneck: Network ?

Veeam Logoby albertwt » Wed Jun 01, 2016 9:48 pm

Hi People,

When doing the VM backup, most often that I see, the bottleneck is the Network.
I get about 29 MB/s for VM backup within the Data Centre and same subnet.

Is this normal ?

What would be the solution to this problem so that the VM snapshot is left open too long ?

Hi Albert,
Could you provide full bottleneck statistics? What transport mode is used? What about the network throughput?

I would also check if there are any throttling rules applied either in Veeam B&R or somewhere between the proxy and repository components.
