Not a typo but a sidenote showing how exactly would data travel in case of Network mode usage, sorry for confusion.The paths above look the same, maybe that is just a typo Esxi host --> mgmt interface ---> network -->backup proxy NIC
Correct, faster snapshot data processing results in snapshot to be released sooner.I guess this still would not help with Esxi taking a long time to remove snapshots, but if it speeds up the backup then the overall time would decrease.
Please see this KB and feel free to ask additional questions, if any arise.Is there anything to watch out for when switching to this mode? I am currently using network mode and the performance is not great (on a 1Gbs network unfortunately), but I don't want to try anything new that might create issues or down time obviously.
That depends on the amount of tasks that run concurrently, please check system requirementshow much load does this put on the vm that is performing the role of backup proxy, can I use and existing server that has another role or would it be better to dedicate a small server for this task?
