Patrick - again it seems that we have the exact same issue. Working with the support yesterday (2:nd line), it seems that for many vm:s, a lot (if not all) of the added time is spent waiting after the snapshot is taken and before the vmx-copy begins. The problem is that the log is empty during this time, sometimes up to 5 minutes where nothing happens, and no resources on the server is in use. This issue was forwared to the developers yesterday.

Jimmy,

Thanks for the info. I plan on uploading more logs to them this weekend as well for analysis.

Thanks,
Patrick

I seem to have similar issues. Mind you, I didn't upgrade from v7, I installed a new server and proxy, use the same configuration settings. Backing up the same VM, my Veeam v7 does it in 4 mins at 372 MB/s. My Veeam v8 setup does it in 18 mins, capped at 52 MB/s...

Both backups were started from scratch with no previous restore points.
Bottleneck is showing : source at 99%.

I double checked everything, iSCSI initiators, transport mode, firewall, nothing seems different except from the fact that the new server is physical and has such more resources to itself .

Source is on a HP P2000 G3 10GbE 24 drives SAN , target is a QNAP 1279URP with 12 drives , all connected on 10GbE fabric
Both backup jobs ( v7 and v8 ) have the same source and same target.

Source bottleneck at 99% is never a Veeam issue. Direct SAN access mode capped at 52MB/s on 10Gb Ethernet would make me look at the entire networking stack between a backup proxy and a SAN. The simplest test would be to create an NTFS LUN on the SAN, and copying a large file from that LUN down to the backup proxy's local disk.

Thank you for replying.

I did a few tests.

Backing up same VM
On my v7 setup : network utilization is on the iSCSI interface ( 10Gb/s ) for the Send ( Repository which is a iSCSI LUN and a NAS ) and Receive ( from the ESXI datastore )
On my v8 setup : Send and Receive are split on both the LAN interface ( 1Gbps ) and the SAN interface ( iSCSI 10GbE ), that is where the cap is.

Unfortunately, I cannot create an NFS LUN on the production SAN but I did transfer a large file from an NFS LUN on a NAS to the proxy ( proxy is hosted on the SAN, it's a VM ) and it was 300 MB/s ...

Problem fixed.

Veeam Proxy wasn't configured properly on the SAN side.

I see 250+MB/s now :)

Hi,
I upgrade veeam from V7 to v8.
Nothing was changed in job settings....but all my job do a full backup in a new folder at the first running in Veeam V8

Do you have this issue? Is it normal (i don't think so)

Thanks

This is definitely not expected. Looks like previous backups were not recognized (like if you use Remove from backups command to remove them from Veeam B&R console). Have you contacted technical support already?

@patrikl78
Finally my performance problem with v8 has been solved (new version of VeeamAgent.exe).
Performance is now back to v7 level, or possibly al litte faster.

@Gostev - case 686930

However - I have not installed update1 and have not confirmed if the new veeamagent works with this.
Also - I have no confirmation if this new veeamagent will be included in update 2.

It would be much appreciated if I could get clarification of these questions.

I have now got confirmation that the working veeamagent (with performance fix) will be included in patch2 wich (probably) will be released in March.

I was running a SureBackup job when i noticed that progress indicator stayed at 0% in the SureBackup job tab, while the progress indicator (% completed) worked normal in running jobs tab.

This issue still exists in last update 3.

Right, was not fixed in this update, however, still on our radar.
