EMC SourceOne Bandwidth Issues
Posted on 2011-02-25
I have a customer that recently implemented EMC SourceOne Archiving solution. In all sites, but one the client is running great. Unfortunately the office having the issues houses the CFO, CEO and President of the company. The office has a 1.5M T1 connection to the remote site housing the Exchange Server, as well as the SourceOne Management Server.
In this particular office when SourceOne is running we see a 100% saturation of the 1.5M T1 line causing other applications in the office to have latency issues. On a normal day to day basis without SourceOne running, the connection hovers around 500 to 600k.
There are 4 clients is this office that require SourceOne. Currently just a single client can cause the results mentioned above. Has anyone seen this type of behavior before? The mailboxes were cached at the remote site housing the Exchange Server, as well as the SourceOne Management Server before bringing them online in the office they were to be used. Unfortunately we are still seeing SourceOne doing something in the background to cause network latency.
We are currently working with EMC, but unfortunately we have not seen any progress. I apologize if my description is not very clear. If more information is needed I would be glad to provide it. I will also say that I know next to nothing about SourceOne aside from the minimal exposure during the troubleshooting efforts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
