Exchange 2007 GRT Catalog Operation Slow
The backup job size is 184GB and takes around 8 hours to complete (386.02 MB/min) . The catalog job is the same speed but the size is 320GB or in the case of the current job it is 371GB and growing and has been running for over 24hours.
We have a 5 year old Dell PowerEdge 1850 (Media Server) with network team of two 1Gbps connected to the same switch as a HP D2D StorageWorks Backup System model D2D2503i that is also teamed with a LACP trunk.
Im new to Backup Exec 2012 and i don't recall Backup Exec 2010 creating a seperate backup job and a seperate catalog job for GRT backups?.
Our email server is at a seperate site from the PowerEdge and HP D2D via 100Mbps circuit, but I am not sure if the catalog processing is done locally?
Unfortunately I don't have a great baseline of speed to know if 386.02 MB/min is even that good, as to me it seems pretty slow?
Why is the size of the catalog job so big?
If these questions can be answered and any additional help offered, we would really appreciate it.
