I want solution for restore taking time from seconadry storage to solaris machine (on solaris machine, we installed the latest netbackup 7.7).
we tried some option such as reduced fragments size; setting on solaris machine
Please provide us help so that we can restore our data easily .
Please provide more details about your NetBackup environment.
Master Server OS/NBU version, media server OS/NBU version.
Details about secondary storage- tape, disk ?
Backup-Policy details about the Solaris machine in question ?
Where are the backups ? On tape, on disk ?
If the backup is to tape, is it multiplexed (mpx), if so, what is the mpx value (how many streams are there).
Can you copy /paste the details tab from activity monitor up here, from a restore that is slow, but does complete.
mph999 is right - the job details would be very helpful.
A few other things...
Have you looked at the i/o stats on the disk you're restoring too? If using a disk or MSDP storage unit, also check the disk i/o on the media server.
iostat -xtn 1 5
** I think :) Check the output - disregard the first one as that's the average since boot or since the last run.
Since your client is Solaris - run iostat -en to see if the disks are getting any hard write or transport errors. Then review /var/adm/messages to see when those errors occurred.
Check the network - are there any dropped packets? Any limiting factors?
i.e. netstat -s (for the tcp and IP stack statistics)
netstat -ian for the NIC stats.
But again - mph999 is correct - please paste the job details (or attach them), and also please tell us what storage is used, what media server is used (o/s). On the media server - also check the same items - netstats, iostat's
