Problem with job options

Post by Erick » Jun 05, 2014 9:15 am

Hello,
sorry for my bad english, but i'm french.

In our company, we have:
- A Backup Server with Veeam Backup&Replication v7.0
- 2 vmWare ESX 4.1.0 with a virtual center
- 40 VM with various OS an aplication than:
* Windows Server 2003 R2 with Oracle Database 10g
* Windows Server 2003 R2 with HyperFile DB (Windev)
* Windows Server 2003 R2 without any database
* Windows Server 2008 R2 64bits with Oracle Database 11g R2 64 bits
* Windows Server 2008 R2 64bits with Microsoft SQL Server
* Windows Server 2008 R2 64bits with HyperFile DB (Windev)
* Windows Server 2008 R2 64bits with ActiveDirectory
* Windows Server 2008 R2 64bits without any database
* Linux with Mysql
* Linux with Oracle Database 10g
* Linux without any database

Tools are installed on each VM.

I have "VmWare Tools quiescence" activted.
I've read that it's better to activate "Application-aware image processing" for ensure that backup are consistent.
Since I had activeted this option, my backup jobs are extremely slower (around 2 hours before, and 5 hours now)

Two questions:
- it is right that my jobs are so long?
- For each case of these VM, witch options are necessary ("VmWare Tools quiescence", "Application-aware image processing", etc.)

If possible, I wish backup my VM without stop databases.
Thanks for help.

Hello Erick,

What are the bottlenecks stats for these two backup job runs (with and without application-aware image processing enabled)?

Thank you!

Bottleneck stats are available by right-clicking the job and selecting the Statistics command.

Also, I would like to know whether you have a single job including all the listed VMs or split them in several jobs in some manner and what are the application-aware image processing settings for these jobs.

This is stats with "Application-aware processing".
I'll desactivate it, run job and send you result in a few hours.

05/06/2014 07:55:47 :: Load: Source 27% > Proxy 12% > Network 5% > Target 90%
05/06/2014 07:55:47 :: Primary bottleneck: Target

I remember that without this option, the job take above 2 hours.

According to the bottleneck stats, the bottleneck for this job is write speed to the target storage, which does not have any common with enabling application-aware image processing. Anyway, debug logs should clearly tell which operations take most of the time during backup, so I suggest contacting support for reviewing them.

BTW, what backup mode are you using? Reversed or forward?

Additionally, can you tell what particular AAIP options are set? For instance, is the indexing enabled or not? Also, was it full or incremental run that took longer than usual? Thanks.
