Backup of Win2`K Fileserver
I have a BIG performance problem with the backup of a win2k fileserver. It used
to be pretty long before but it was managable. But now the sysadmins put it on
storageworks SAN. By doing that they of course changed the drive letter. Now it
has to do a full backup of that drive. The old drive had 1,173,414 files and
120 GB of
data according to q occ. We compress at the client. We have backup retention
set to 2-1-NL-30. The backup had been running for 2 weeks!!! when we cancelled
it to try to
tweak certain options in dsm.opt. The client is at 220.127.116.11 and the server is
at 4.1.3 (18.104.22.168 in a few weeks). Network is 100 mb. I know that journal
backups will help
but as long as I don't get a full incremental in it doesn't do me any good.
Some of the settings in dsm.opt :
The network card is set to full duplex. I wonder if an FTP test with show some
Gremlins in the network...?? Will try it..
I'm certain the server is ok. It's a F80 with 4 processors and 1.5 GB of RAM,
though I can't seem to get the cache hit % above 98. my bufpoolsize is 524288.
DB is 22 GB
I'm really stumped and I would appreciate any help
