Backup Exec 2010 Duplicate Job Very Very Slow

Created: 23 Jan 2014 | 4 comments

I have a a vpn between 2 locations

Location 'a' has a nas and Backup Exec Server 2010

Location 'b' has a nas

When running a duplicate job from Nas 'a' to Nas 'b' Its job rate is 19.0 MB/min

I have the bandwidth available since when I run 2 jobs at the same time both are going at the same rate of 19 MB/min

What can I do to stop Backup Exe from limiting the speed?

Are you upgraded to the most recent update of Backup Exec 2010 R3 Sp3?

Have you tried disabling any antivirus scans?

What is the transfer speed when you do a copy and paste?

What nas versions are you using? verify support with the SCL   http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH137682

Speed depends also on VPN software or appliance USed. So not sure if this is BE related...

BE isn't limiting the speed. Do a file copy between the 2 NAS arrays (A to B, B to A) and see what speeds you are getting...

Thanks!

@Imosla I am upgraded to SP3

@Escape.be My VPN has plenty of bandwith available

@CraigV I havent done an actual File transfer test but When having multiple backup Exec jobs running to the same NAS they all limit them selves to 19 MB/min but run simultaniously at that speed.
