Media Server Resources
I have an HP DL 380 G6 server with 6GB ram with 2008R2. While the BE 2012 is doing a backup, the server is very slow at processing other tasks, even in BE, like configuring another backup or editing storage. If I look at the resources being used via Taskmanager, the CPU is idling at 2% and the ram is at about 20%. If I run a second backup simulaneously the server eventually freezes and I can't do anything (remotely). I'm not even sure if the services are still running in the background. If I close my RDP session and login again, I'm met with the frozen screen. I could send a remote restart to the server but that could just corrupt the DB etc and crash the backup.
What could be eating up all the resources? Would adding more RAM help?
