Veeam Direct SAN througput

Hi all,

we have vspher 4 with EqalLogic ISCSI SAN
Veeam is installed on Win 2008 and directly connected to the SAN network using ISASI initiator with 1 Gb NIC

I setup a backup job to backup file to the same VeeaM server but the

Process rate = 52 MB/s

I thought i would see something near 1Gb. this is almost the same if we backup through the network and not use the Direct SAN

is this throughput normal?

Thanks

Your throughput will increase if you enable Jumbo Frames, if supported by SAN and Networking Equipment.

Jumbo Frames have been enabled all the way. I have done this before posting this question.
Not sure why i get this low throughput, I have 1G Network all the way and Jumbo Frames and Flow Control are also enabled.

Hi hanccocka,

Unfortunately this link does not help as i dont have Veeam on VM but it is on physical server. Aslo the Veeam backup uses the direct SAN and not the Network.

Probably i shold have mentioned this in my original question. Sorry

Thanks anyway
