Netbackup 18.104.22.168 Slow San Transport ESXi 5.1
Hi, Long time user, first time poster.
Currently we have a greenfeild build out of Vcenter/ESXi 5.1 and are in the midst of our Netbackup 22.214.171.124 deploy. Currently we are configured for SAN Transport over a Converged 10GB/FCoE (Qlogix 8242) connection from our EMC 55xx series storage. When backing up to local disk on the media server we see decent (100M/s) transfer for the first two VM backups with a significant drop off in speed for each and every VM after the first two. By the time the 10th vm is backing up the transfer rate is down to 8K/s. We have followed all of the best practice docs and everything is up to patch. Our partner is stumped at this time.
We have tested both regular SAN and Network transport rates outside of Netbackup, all is as it should be.
