Backup Isilon SMB filer

Hi, since I got no reply on my first attemp, I will try another time :

We got a new Isilon with 700TB. We have 30 millions of files on it (small filles). We prefer to use Incremental for ever then the NDMP model because we dont want to take a full backup every week!

Our first try take 3.5h for only scanning 3 millions of files. Too long. We are thinking to buy some SSD to put metadata on it and hope to accelerate the scanning time. Do you guy's have try it with good result????

Hi we apply some helping options like (dsm.opt or clopset option) would like network 1G or better 10G to work smooth.

Memoryefficientbackup diskcachemethod (ensure some disk space is available and first run will take longer)
TCPBUFFSIZE 512
RESOURCEUTILIZATION 10 *(change maxnummp for client)
TCPWINDOWSIZE 512
LARGECOMMBuffers Yes
TXNByteLimit 2097152 *change up for many big files
******************************************************************and*******
TESTFLAGS threadstacksize:2048 *to avoid some errors in long paths checked in version 8.1.0

Also I would suggest to split data in 3 separate nodes/FS or run by local script with different complementary path.

But, of course! :D

We're at 7.1.7 (soon to be at 7.1.8).
We just stood up an instance of 8.1.1.0 to run parallel with our MUCH older TSM versions. We are working on a method to "cut over" soon, but we have challenges with the big picture.
BTW and side note - does ADSM.org allow direct messages ? I stalked you thru the "interweb" :p as I was looking for info and experience with Infinidat. Thanks
