Veritas Netbackup Taking Long Time for completion

Hi,

Veritas NetBackup takes long time for completion of backups.Earlier backup window was around 30 hours with Symantec Backup Exec 11.d for one policy but after deployment of Netbackup 6.5 it shoots to more than 65 hours.Please help us to resolve this issue.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you backuping over network? Is the network reliable?
Check the performances of both client and server during backup (memory, disk, proc,...), as well as the priority of the client's process.
Also check your exclusions (ie, don't backup your pagefile...)
Also see if you can enable the verbose output, it might give clues...

Are some/all/none files opened? did you try with enabling/disabling  virtual shadow copy to see how it impacts performance?
