Spoold.exe Constant Disk IO
Just seeing if the behaviour we are experiencing is normal with a Netbackup PureDisk pool on Windows 2008 R2 - Netbackup 18.104.22.168. We are seeing a high read IO on the puredisk volume. Its hard to tell what is casing this or is it normal. After a backup we can see up to and more 120MB/sec or reads to the purdisk volume (only thing on the volume). This is with no backups or duplication jobs running. Does this process throttle itself if we start duplicating images to tape and need high read performance? No AV running on this volume, and process explorer flags spoold.exe as the cultript.
Also is there anyway to benchmark the rehydration process to tape? I have a strong suspicion that we are not pushing data to the tape drives as fast as they can handle it.
