Slow Tape Backups
I'm running Backup exec 2012 on a new windows 2008 r2 server with dual processors and 16 GB of ram. It is using a 3 Gb SAS controller to connect to my Overland Neo 400s with two IBM half height LTO 6 SAS drives. I have hardware compression and encryption turned on. I am trying to backup two linux servers, one has 7 TB of data and the other 20. After 14 hours, one has backed up 1.4 TB of data and the other 400 GB. It is utilizing both tape drives.
Processor usage stays at 1 - 2% and memory stays at 13%.
How can I speed this up? At this rate it will take all month to do a full backup.
