staging directory at 95% capacity
We've been experiencing an issue with backups taking a long time to complete. Part of the reason they are taking so long is that the write speeds will slow from 20000 to 30000 kbs down to 5000 to 7000 kbs. The resolution is for me to reboot the backup/media server. This write speed slow down happens across all disks, all OS's (Unix, Oracle, Windows).
In my limited troubleshooting skills I noticed that after i rebooted the server (media/backup) the staging directory went from 95% capacity to 83% capacity.
Could the staging directory filling up be causing any of the write speeds to slow?
server - Version 6.5.4 (out of support)
clients - 6.5.3 to 6.5.4
