Source NFS datastore destination iSCSi datastore

Post by pcrebe » Oct 01, 2013 6:59 pm

Hi,
Are there some problem for a replication job of a VM from a NFS datastore to an iSCSI datastore?
Source NetApp NFS datastore
Destination MD3000i iSCSI datastore
VeeamB&R Hot add mode


Thanks

Hi,
First onsite replica
Processing rate 20 MB/s
Bottleneck target 77%

Seems slower than before.

Thanks

Do you have parallel disk and VM processing option enabled? This should make your job run faster.

Thanks

It depends on how many VMs/disks you have in the job and how many jobs you're running at the same time. The more concurrent tasks you have, the more amount of disks you can process. Start with the number you have now, and check what load on target storage you have.
