Backup Exec throttling back

BrendanMC
Level 3
Currently running backup exec 12.5 and 11d on two different servers. I was going to update 11d to 12.5 but wanted to resolve this issue first.
both running 2003
both use a scsi
both use a quantum sdlt600 tape drive for backing up


both are pulling sources from within(no network)
both start off about 1400mb\min
both throttle back to about 200mb\min

I have updated the drivers for the drives, made sure i have the latest patch for BE.

so I am at a loss for why they throttle back during backing up.

Hi brendan,

Various reasons really...size of the backup, number of tables in an SQL DB, number of files etc.
But read up here and see if it helps at all:
