This issue has been solved. See solution.
We are trying to archive a File server volume with large number of folders and files.
Archiving is running on 24x7 schedule, however since last few weeks FSA report file is 0kb and nothin in there.
DTrace of EvFsaArchivingTask just shoing the following entries ..... for all folders .....subfolders ....
43   10:04:44.292 [6,652] (EvFsaArchivingTask) <1260> EV-L {Folder.IsMarkedAsRootFolder} Checking if folder: \\?\UNC\server1.domain.local\F$\archive\Level 17 is  marked as a Root Folder

What is happening at this stage? When FSA will start archiving? 
Many Thanks

Hmmm called Symantec Support, they have deleted the archive point and created and created again, didn't work. Then they removed the Target file server completely and created the archive folder again and it started working again.
