Apologies Carlos - I totally missed your reply...

Have a look at this TN: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH76719

GENERAL ERROR : Status 10 on AIX client, the bpbkar process produces "bpbkar read_and_sort_dir_entries: FTL - dir_list_rec malloc failed. Errno = 12:" messages in the log when backing up a file system that contains too many small files

CAUSE:
 
Root cause of this issue was caused by lack of program data memory on AIX system. In AIX, 32-bit applications may access one segment(256MB) of program data memory by default.
 
SOLUTION:
 
Increased the amount of the memory to 2 gig using the command below and the filesystem backup in the production enviernment completed successfully without any memory issue.
 
 #  ldedit -b maxdata:0x80000000 /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpbkar
 
Note: The command above should be executed when no bpbkar process runs on the system otherwise it won't be changed to 2GB.

You seem to be using Client Compression in your policy?
As a start, turn it off, as this features increases memory usage on the client.

Are you having issues?

You just be able to do just a normal backup on it.

So are you having issues?  is it a jfs or jfs2 files system or something else?

(also give us your os type of master server, and what version of netbackup you are using)

Hello

Yes I have issues, I can't backup those files . We use jfs2. The os type of master server is AIX 5.3 and the version of NB is 6.5.6.

Regards

JFS and JFS2 filesystems are

JFS and JFS2 filesystems are supported, but not Extended Attributes or Named Data Streams.

Could you please post bpbkar log for this client as well as policy output (bppllist <policy-name> -U).

Also post contents of Activity Monitor Details tab (just to give us a bit more info).

Please post bpbkar log as attachment.

Ok, this is the information

Ok, I attached the required information.
