We've been trying to evaluate the new NDMP feature in version 12.5 of Backup Exec, namely the ability to back up non-NDMP selections to NDMP devices (library/drive attached directly to a NetApp filer).
We've found that we can get a maximum data transfer rate of 17MB/min. I've checked for bottlenecks every step of the way. I've even gone so far as to replace every piece of kit except the Filer (we don't have a spare SAN floating about) and have had a support call with Symantec since the day after the release. They've checked out our systems themselves, passing the call from India (or wherever the call centre is) to the techs in the US and then to the techs in the UK and I've now been told that it is working to specification.
Has anyone else tried the new NDMP feature in 12.5? If so could you please let me know what you think and most importantly what speeds you've managed to get out of it?
