SPP - Spectrum Protect Plus - poor performance

Has anyone gone through POC, got good results with SPP and implemented SPP?

We have been testing SPP for 3 weeks now and the perfromance is terrible. I would like to compare notes if someone has data.

We installed 10.1.1 and right out of the gate, we had to apply 1 hotfix, then 3 more. The issue is a slow inventory of remote VMs. IBM advertises that you only need one SPP server even if you have remote sites. Inventory is running very, very long for the remote site.

Is someone else experiencing this?

Local is great - how about remote sites?

How remote is remote? Are your tcp buffers on the adapters large enough to allow streaming?

Is vCenter local and VM remote, or is everything remote?

Due to latency, it may be better to have the SPP instance run locally to the VMs, and then let its datastore spool off to S3 or dsmserv (again, with good tcp buffers).

This all assumes you have decent enough bandwidth, low error rates, etc.
