Hi there,
I have been trying to get some answer out of pre-sales for over a month now but to no avail. To show due dilligence I need to give my director stats on how much overhead (memory, processing, IO) BESR can add to a server in idle or when creating an image or increment. I know in practice it is very little but there must be benchmarks somewhere I can show our Director. Some of our servers are quite intensive.

The minimum system requirements for Backup Exec System Recovery 8 can be found at the following link:
