I would like to attempt to compare our replication performance with others. In my opinion, our performance used to be better in the past but it just seems to take a really long time now and I would like to get some comparisons. I'll try and layout the technical specs below.
Our source and destination servers are Dell PE720, dual six core cpu, 256gigs ram
Vmware vsphere 6.0 Update 2 plus all patches after
Latest Veeam 9.5
Dell PE 3200i SAN at both locations, all drives are 600gig 15K rpm sas
1 gig iscsi (although I'm not sure that matters in this case)
All disk groups are 12 drive disk groups in a raid 10
We are replicating over a 30 Mbps vpn tunnel to a distant site, all 30 Mbps are available, however we rarely use the available bandwidth which I find odd, its more likely to see 15-20 Mbps in use. Source always seems to be our bottleneck according to veeam.
