Veaam Replication of a Powered Off VM

Veeam Logoby Timjames » Tue Apr 18, 2017 11:27 am

Team, i am using veeam ver 9.0 to run the replication.. its taking so long to run the replica and am not sure why.. is it adviseable to run the replication when the VM is powered Off... am really wondering how a bandwidth of 50/50 MBPS has a transfer speed on 2.1 MB/s.... Help guyz..

Hi Tim,

Please, share what are the bottleneck stats for the replication job?

Thanks!

Bottleneck "target" means that the target disk writer component spends most of the time writing data to the storage.
What transport mode is used by the target proxy? Btw is there a backup proxy at the offsite location?


Thanks!

Tim,

I'd highly recommend you to deploy a backup proxy at the offsite, this should improve performance of the job.
If the bottleneck still remains on target, then i'd suggest the issue on the storage.

Please, review this existing thread about best practices for Replication. Thanks!

BTW, if you have Veeam ONE, then you can run this report > Backup Infrastructure Assessment, which will analyze your current deployment and will come up with recommended changes according to our best practices.

What was the bottleneck during last run?
Did you choose target proxy manually in the replication job settings?

Thanks
