Looking for clarification on media server side deduplicaion over WAN link
We are trying out the DeDuplication option to back up some OES Linux servers we have in remote sites connected via T1 links.See the back story at this post...
The linux servers are performing a media server side deduplication job and the performance is terrible. it slowly drops to 10K/min. Is there anything to be done? I have read other forum posting that reccomend getting WAN accelerators. I am looking for any config settings to improve performance. I didn't see any in the RALUS config file. Are there others? Backups within the LAN/segment on similar OES servers are moving along at 600KB/min so I don't think that it's anything to do with the config of the media server, dedup folders or drives. I have broken the servers down into separate jobs.
I guess I'm asking, are media server side dedup jobs over a T1 WAN link do-able?
