Maximum concurrent jobs

Created: 05 Sep 2013 | 3 comments

Is it possible to check where NetBackup keeps track of the number of concurrent jobs it's writing to a Disk Storage Unit?  I'm getting jobs queued up that they have reached the max for the storage unit but if I count up the number of active jobs the numbers don't add up so I'm worried my media server may have their count off somehow.

Check on Master Server host properties-> General Max number of clients

In policy Attributes - Jobs per policy

in STU Concurrent jobs

Adjust the number and see if it helps

Also see threshold are not met

There are three places you need to tune this parameter.

1.       Master server Global Parameter

2.       Policy

3.       Storage Unit

You can tune max concurrent jobs as per your requirement.

The resource broker on the master server keeps track.

You can check allocated resources with this command:

nbrbutil -dump
