Veeam B&R 6.1 and iSCSI performance...

Post by stickymicky » Aug 15, 2012 8:48 pm

Hi all,

I have a iSCSI SAN with 8 ports which is programmed for mulitpathing etc...

I then have a backup server which has 2 x NICs which is hooked into each paths so it can access both controllers...

The performance im seeing with the backup server being hooked into the SAN fabric with the proxy in SAN mode doesn't appear to be amazing???

I seem to be getting anywhere between 20mb/s to 40mb/s where as i would have expected much more???

Is this normal with a multiple 1Gb connect SAN or is anyone else getting much faster processing figures???

Thanks in advance.

Transfer rate on a single 1 gbit link is 125 MBs, so even if you gave no detail about your environment, even a single link cannot be the bottle neck if you are seeing only 20-40 MBs transfer.
