I am trying to tweak some more backup performance on one of my servers and was hoping for some ideas.
Here is the setup. I have a windows 2003 server that has Symantec Enterprise Vault installed on it. One of the drives currently has 1.1TB of data on it. A full backup of that drive directly to tape (as I have no other option) takes 49 hours. I am receiving 6424 KB/Sec on the bacup job.
I am running NB 6.5.4 and the data connection between the media server and vault server is gigabyte ethernet. I have 6 tape drives available but I can only get it to use one. I have multiplexing and multiple data streams turned on. My current multi-plexing is set to 4 and I have tried other values to try to speed up performance with no measurable change in results.
I don't know of anything else to try so I am open to all suggestions.
