Multiplexing and Maximum Concurrent Jobs - Best Practices
I have a Netbackup 7.5 Master server at the head office with 32GB RAM, 2 CPU X5650 2.66GHz (16 core total) which is connected to a Storagetek SL500 with 6 drives LTO 5.
My Netbackup Media server is in our datacenter (Cloud) 12 miles away, with 48GB RAM, 2 CPU X5650 2.66GHz (16 core total) which is connected to a LUN of 16T, 7200rpm (nearline). Storage Unit
Actualy, I do not use the multiplexing on my Storagetek drives and my maximum concurrent jobs for my storage units is 6 (media server)
The backup are going to the storage unit (16T) during night (backup to disk) and after, during the day, the backup are duplicated to the 6 tapes drives, 12 miles away, at the head office, Master server.
My backup start at 5pm to 7am and my duplication is starting at 7am to 5pm.
How I could optimize my systems?
- does I should run the duplication all day long, instead of 7am to 5pm?
- does I should increase the maximum concurrent jobs on my media storage units?
- does I should use the multipliexing on my 6 Storagetek drives?
The differntial backup's runing monday to friday
Full Backup during the week-end
I'm asking because everything is running 24/24 and more client servers is comming very soon.
I want to reduse the backup and duplication time.
Thanks for your help
