When i do a restore of single files from a vmware backup. the gui hangs, the restore completes but the job never gets done.
from the log file:
10:35:28 (5485091.001) INF - TAR EXITING WITH STATUS = 0
10:35:28 (5485091.001) INF - TAR RESTORED 1095 OF 1095 FILES SUCCESSFULLY
10:35:28 (5485091.001) INF - TAR KEPT 0 EXISTING FILES
10:35:28 (5485091.001) INF - TAR PARTIALLY RESTORED 0 FILES
10:35:30 INF - Beginning read-blockmap
Have anybody seen this before ??
You came back with 2 different "netstat -an | grep WAIT | wc" results so I am not sure which one are latest , or one during the restore?
Anyway, a high number (usually > 50 or up to hundreds) would mean a lot of WAITing sockets pending to be closed, they stay there because of the normal TCP time wait preset in OS. Depend on the OS platform, you can reduce the TCP keepalive time to let the sockets closing sooner, please take a look at:
Note, only change the TCP keepalive time if the result gives you consistent high number (> 50), otherwise there is no need to change.
