Max number of concurrent operations to backup to disk folder using BackupExec 11d
Posted on 2007-04-04
I am setting up a backup to disk device using Backup Exec 11d and am wondering how many concurrent operations I should set for that folder. In the documentation it states that "the number of concurrent operations can be set depending on the number of processors", but it doesn't give any guide lines as to what that means.
I am running backup exec 11d on a Windows 2003 Storage Server R2 64bit machine w/ 1 GB of RAM. In the task manager, the perfomance tab show a total of eight processors.
How many concurrent operations can I run without sacraficing too much performance?
