Backup Exec 2010 Throuhput Rate is Slow
Posted on 2010-11-25
I am using Backup Exec 2010 R2 to perform full backups on all of our servers once a week and then differential backups
throughout the week.
We are a 24/7 company and due to the vast amount of data I am finding it difficult to complete the full backups
under 24 hours so that the differentials are able to run the next day.
All of our servers have gigabit network cards and a link speed of 1Gbps, however, when I am backing up the Windows system
drive I get an average throughput rate of 209MB/min. How can I speed this up? Or is this a normal speed for backing up Windows?
I have tested the network on one of the servers by copying a 1GB file to and from the Backup Media Server, the file was
copied in 55 seconds.
