Slow performance on Disk Storage Units, Disk Staging Storage Units and Deduplication Storage
The default buffer size for bpdm (disk backups) is 262144 (256K). A better value is 1048576 (1MB).
Create the following file:
Add the value 1048576 into the file.
Add the value 64 into the file.
No restart is needed for NetBackup after these files are created.
If Status 89 is now seen on the backups, increase the system's shared memory value in the kernel settings and then reboot the system. For a workaround on the Status 89, temporarily reduce the values above in the buffer files and retry the backup.
Tuning for both disk and tape storage unit writes
