Backup Exec running slow
Posted on 2003-11-06
Hi, help needed on speeding things up.
current set up
NT4 backup exec 8.5 (all service packs/options available) (the server isnt doing anything other than backing up at the time.
backup exec is based on the exchange server,
and backs up the edb files with agent then also does a mailbox backup.
then it backs up a few other servers of general data(windows 2000). and there is a second DLT which has jobs backing up sql data (first bak files then the c drive its self.
I know mailbox back up is slow.
but jobs are getting very long with out a great change in the amount of data.
data rates have changed from 300mb to 40mb and i cant see why,
do you have any tips/best practice ideas etc,
im going to recreate all the jobs, but would like to know what you think some changes i could make /try before hand
we do use Norton navce but even tried disabling this over night no change.
a remote windows 2000 server 40mb
a remote sql server win2000 130mb
local data 140 mb
a remote nt 4 server 100mb
all of these used to be well over 200mb and i cant think of anything that has changed.
