When File System Archiving (FSA) is configured to archive from a single folder, containing a large quantity of files, archiving performance will degrade.
A dtrace log capturing the EvFsaArchivingTask will show long run times of the GetArchivedItemPropertiesInBatch stored procedure. Times shown in the dtrace for “Time taken to execute StoreDB Query” are in Milliseconds.
The issue will reveal itself when an FSA archive folder contains a large quantity of archived files and there is a large quantity of file to be archived to it.
Create a new logical folder structure within the target volume archive point and then move the files from the folder causing the issue into the new folder structure. By distributing the files into the appropriate folder structure long query times may be avoided.
