Re: Slow SLP Duplication Jobs

please find attached BPTM log. (verbose level 4)


Re: Slow SLP Duplication Jobs

Please post bptm log as .txt file.
.log cannot be opened online or on a mobile device. We also need Activity Monitor that matches the bptm log.
As per request of 2 weeks ago:

"We still need bptm log - as well as Job details for backup job and Job details for duplication job.

Job details will give us timestamps and bptm PIDs that we can use to trace each of the jobs in bptm log. "

Re: Slow SLP Duplication Jobs

If you follow bptm PID 16808 through 111616 log file, you will see that 'waiting for position' happened over here:

10:54:58.539 [16808.18000] <2> ... INF - Waiting for positioning of media id 1005L6

Although nothing is mentioned in Activity Monitor, media got positioned over here:

10:55:45.059 [16808.18000] <2> io_position_for_write: locate block is done

Started writing copy 2 over here (6 seconds later): 

10:55:51.512 [16808.18000] <4> write_backup: begin writing backup id ....., copy 2, fragment 1, to media id 1005L6 on drive IBM.ULT3580-HH6.001

Fragment 1 finished writing at 11:04 at 50MB/sec:

11:04:04.175 [16808.18000] <4> write_backup: successfully wrote backup id ... copy 2, fragment 1, 24445401 Kbytes at 50141.224 Kbytes/sec

Keep following same PID through the file and you will see more and more images being written - next one completes at 11:19 at 60MB/sec.

This bptm duplication completes successfully at 11:26:29. As per Activity Monitor as well.

So... no evidence here of long wait for tape position.

The only problem I see is with older version SLPs still trying to access old STU... 

Oh! And no hcart3 tape drives available between these timestamps:

11/15/2016 15:26:08 - awaiting resource nbsrv01-hcart3-robot-tld-0. No drives are available.
11/16/2016 10:54:07 - resource @aaaac reserved

 You need to trace drive usage (e.g. vmoprcmd and nbrbutil -dump) when you see the 'No drives are available ' message.
