Netapp SnapMirror

My snap mirrors are taking far longer to complete that I would suspect.  Is there a way through the GUI to analyze what within the snap is taking so much space and bandwidth?

Enable compression on the snapmirror. Usually reduces data sent by at least 40 percent. It is command line only so you will need to modify the snapmirror.conf file

Thanks Paul.  We actually have this traffic passing through the Riverbed which is compressing like 80%.  But even with that we're getting many gigs of traffic per day after compression.  Something is not right and I need to dig into what file or files is having so much delta.  When a snap completes is there a summary of what went on?  Our admin quit and I network guy am trying to dig into what's eating all my bandwidth all day long.  The Riverbed can tell me it's the snap.  But I need to dig into the snap.

Take a look at snapmirror.log file and it will give the sizes. Also take a look at the snapsots sizes. What type of data are you replicating?

The data should be production Pervasive SQL mostly.  I am suspicious some how a swap file or something like that is getting thrown into the snap.  Can I view the snapmirror.log from the GUI?  Sorry for the newbie Question.  I've just never wandered into this.  I am treading with extreme caution!  :-)
