Room for improvement?

Veeam Logoby 1-0-1 » Thu Jun 16, 2016 11:11 am

So basically this would require a lot of concideration points but I just want to get some from of validation or reference weather my observed backup processing rate is acceptable or if I need to consider fine tuning.

I am running VEEAM B&R 8 as a virtual machine with vCenter 5.1. Both the virtual guest storage unit and backup repository is iSCSI connected (separate storage units). My backup job is configured as a forward incremental and is running at approx. 50 MB/s processing rate. Overall we are able to keep our backup time objectives but before I go into a flurry of investigations I wanted to hear out if the mentioned processing rate is fine for iSCSI or if there is defendant room for improvement.

I know there is most properly more information needed so please let me know what other key information is vital.

Hello Bernd,
There are lots of factors influencing backup speed. The best way to start troubleshooting is bottleneck and full job statistics analysis. Could you provide it?
By the way what transport mode is used?
Thanks!

All the backup proxies are using virtual appliance mode with no option to fallback to network mode. The bottleneck distribution is approx. Source (29%), Proxy (2%), Network (0%) and Target (0%). What do you mean by the job statistics analysis and is there a way to obtain historical consolidated data for the bottleneck distribution?

You should pay attention to the source storage. Probably this thread and this KB article will provide some hints.
