IBM ProtecTIER + replication + backlog problem

I have nominal 400 TB of replicated data that correspond to a one month backup retention on a 1Gbit fiber. time ago I had to stop replication, so I found myself with a backlog of 400TB to recover, at the moment I still have a backlog of 120TB but I can not go below that threshold, also I have a pending of more than 100TB, as I can do to end the replication in acceptable time? thus recovering all the pending.

Hi,

The reason why you still have more than 100TB pending is because the policy is probably still active. Stopping replication won't cut down on the backlog immediately. Eventually the backlog should be reduced because the pending activities are canceled one by one in the background. If you're deleting a policy, the system deletes the entire selected policy, as well as all running and pending activities.

Hope it helps you out.
