Time Machine slowing down end users' workstations
Posted on 2012-08-26
Have a case where all users are backing up to a central Time Machine server. Now when the backup takes place, the users computers all slow down in performance - so much they have to pause the backup to operate their computers again.
Now, I have verified the disk is fine that they are backing up to. The network is running at 1gbps, so I can confirm that is ok as well by moving data and reaching these speeds.
I looked at suggestions of disabling Spotlight index on the backup volume, but I haven't seen any improvement here.
Does anyone have any suggestions/fixes to help alleviate the Time Machine slow downs?
