dedupe concurrent jobs limits question
I know that for a dedupe store there are is a limit on the maximum concurrent jobs setting.
My question is what happens to a backup job if the dedupe folder is being currently used by to the maximum setting - does the job fail or does it get queued?
to explain better:
I have a new media server which has 8 cores and 192GB of ram, so it is fairly chunky. We are wanting to backup our servers to a dedupe store on this. We have approximatley 60 servers.
For arguments sake lets say i set the maximum concurrent jobs to 10. If I set the backup jobs for these servers to run at 7PM, 60 servers will try and backup to the store at 7PM. I'm assuming that 10 will "win" and start to backup - but what will happen to the other 50 jobs? will they be queued then start once one of the orginal servers completes - or will they fail?
I would really not want to have to create 60 jobs with different start times if possible as the management and scheduling of that would be a nightmare.
Can anyone help? I hope i have explained it ok.
