i'm facing a strange issue when duplication images from my AdvDisk...
if i run backup with my Netbackup 22.214.171.124 to Advdisk its successful and duplicating simultaniously to puredisk the performance is OK up to (87000KB/SEC)
if i run backup with my Netbackup 126.96.36.199 to Advdisk its successful and duplicating simultaniously to tape LTO4 the performance is ok OK up to 70000KB/SEC)
if duplication to both PDDO and LTO4 in the same time the performance is 43 000 KB/SEC
i spent many days reading the logs ( nbsl, nbpem, nbjm nbrb , nbstserv ,vxlogcfg etc ) i couldnt find any errors or a source limiting the performance
all what seems to me strange is when writing to tape the bptm reporting in more than 300 lines :
write_data: writing block shorter than BUFF_SIZE, 65536 bytes
write_data: writing short block, 65536 bytes, remainder 0
seems it's related to what previously found :
DUP_BLKSIZE ( in bptm) are by default set to 65536 (64K) so when we duplicate to tape the read requests pass the data in 64 , and the backups written to Advanced disk normally on the disk array the data is being written in 512K if it’s not more, if we will duplicate by passing data in 64K which is insufficient because it will require more (Input/Output Per Second) = the performance decreasing …..
IS it related ????
the Master is an AIX, Appliances 5220
any help sugesstion ?
thank you in advance
