VSR network capped?

I have VSR configured on a Dell xeon with 32gb ram and a 10gb network. I can backup files to the location I am going to save my VSR images too. I get 1.0-1.3GB/s transfer rate without any issues...

VSR is only copying over at say 25-300Mbps which is roughly 35MB/s (google converter hah)..

I have 1tb t back up and dont want it to take forever when i can copy a gig a second via normal file transfer. Is something needed to be configured to get more speed from VSR? or is this the nature?

I know that we have had some issues in the past (https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100006699.html), so I am going to see if we can get the same for VSR 18.x

You mention that a file copy within Windows is fast but how much data did you copy? Does it start fast and get progressively slower testing things that way?

@criley  - Saw those regkeys - yes i do search... hah...

tried following the keys and they dont exist, was hoping for just replace ssr with vsr but no go.. so i apprecaite anything your looking into. Also hopefully you can get it in before the beta program runs out. I will post over there my results if you can get anything going!

so yes, I can copy a 20gb file direct and it goes 1GB/s throughout. I will copy that file a few times and give a bigger go at it to see.

 

once again apprecaite your time.

Just wanted to let you know that I've not forgotten about this.

There is more to do before we can make the reg keys available. Will update when this is complete.

Awesome.. Ill check it out..

 

Re: VSR network capped?

ive done extensive testing on this for all 3 reg keys and has not done any performance gains for my setup. This reply is just letting you know that I have not seen any performance gain, and not a complain. I will share my notes later but just wanted to get this here...

 

Re: VSR network capped?

Testing took time as I was really busy... and i couldnt get consistant results... 

its really easy to see... each backup set is within a block set.

very top was to an aws vm appliance and no keys applied
2nd was an aws physical appliance and no keys applied - continued to use this storage for consistancy
you can see on far left, which key i used. Reg1, Reg2 and Reg3 pertains to the files after zip extracted in that order.

all in all, not sure if there was a benefit so i need to evaluate if i am going to use the keys but I do appreciate your time getting this setup. 

I installed the key, rebooted and fired off a backup...
