we have a full backup that spans 2 LTO-3 tapes, once the second tape gets going, the backup is very slow to complete.
The transfer rate is at 370-400+ mb/sec but it takes a VERY long time to complete.
I know a few factors might be the data is transferring during production hours, the connection for the remote agent has an issue, the physical hardware of the server (2gig should be more than enough)
I noticed that the BE server is running very low on memory and spiking at the cpu on a 2 cpu dual-core.
It doesn't do this on the first tape drive though, another LTO-3.
Any other thoughts? A Virus or spyware perhaps?
