Dear Team,

        We have sql failover cluster ( Node-1,Node-2)  Domain ( Node-3) and Backup server (Node-4). Installed TSM sql client on Node-1&2, Taking backup using Tivoli 5.5 for the past 3 years. Installed Symantec Endpoint protection on Node-1&2, Now the backup performance has dramatically reduced like 32-40 MB/s. Before symmantec it was 92-100 MB/s.
Please advise

If I remember correctly (it's been over 8 years), my old company that used Tivoli and Symantec together ran into this issue.  The problem was SAV's live scan.  I know we ended up removing SAV completely on some systems, but I remember that being the combination of Symantec, Tivoli, and Netware client.  However, you may need to consider that option if the issue persists.  

As a first attempt, though, disable SAV's real-time protection and schedule scans when backups are not running.  If that fixes the issue, you can look into activating real-time scan but excluding specific directories.  I will try to research and see if I find specific ones as it has been a while.  I would target Tivoli and SQL backup directories (vaguely remember it was trying to scan temp files and SQL files being copied by Tivoli).  Again, I will see if I can find a KB article.

Hi,
you should at least exclude from AV scanning:

1. entire directories where the SQL DBs are
2. the C:\program files\Tivoli\tsm directory

hope this helps

Thank you for the confirmation, max_the_king!  I could not find the specific KB article, but I was certain it was real-time scan exclusions of the above directories that fixed the problem for us.
