1 x EV 9.0.2 for Domino Mailbox Archiving

1 x EV 9.0.2 for Domino jounaling archiving

1 x SQL (Common for both)

Backup Exec is deployed on EV server only

Stand alone drive is connected to same server

Enterprise Vault backup runs as low as 180MB/min and size is approx 1 TB.

Support had suggested to enable collection on partitions. Have heard enabling collection improves backup performance but reduces end user archive retrival performance.

- The same backup to a different device such as a B2D folder. To compare rates.

- Local files from the EV servers to the same device.

- Local files from the media server to the same device.

- Copy a large file from the EV server to the media server calculating the time and then the rate via Windows.

These tests may render interesting results.

Support is correct. But you will have to find out, how many archived data is actualy retrieved from EV? In other words, is it a problem if a user opens an archived mail, and has to wait 5 extra seconds ?
Depending on your configuration the reduced performance can be almost not noticable.

Collection enabling will gather the small archived files into larger (20Mb) CAB files.
