VMWAre slow performance
April 05, 2016 02:53AM
Hi folks,

I was wondering if you could assist in providing some steps to take to check for VMWare Netbackup performance issues. We are on 10Gig infrastructure and using ESXi 5.5. Our Netbackup environment is Netbackup 7.6.2 on a 2012 Media servers with a 2008 Master server.

On our VM backups we are getting poor backup speeds. Can you please assist me in identifying what to look at? I read that the VM kernel has a limitation but we not even getting close to it.

Thanks in Advance

How many VM's do you backup concurrently.

What storage media are you writing too?

What is the performance you are experiencing? Check your VMware host information in your policy. Check your communication between ESX and media server and master server. 

Treat the VM as a physical host, install client and back it up that way and see what you get.

Where NBU performance flourishes is when multiple snapshots are running concurrently in combination with NBU Accelerator.
