Very slow backup rate from vSphere Hosts to Media Server
We have recently upgraded from Backup Exec 2010 R2 to 2012. After the upgrade we found that the backups of our VMs from our ESXi 4.1 hosts to the local disk on our media server are running at about 180MB/M.However backups of files in a VM with the backupexec agent installed are backed up at over 1200MB/M. Also backups from a physical server to the media server are in excess of 2000MB/M.
A few things to note about our current enviornment.
- All hosts are running ESXi 4.1
- All hosts are connected to shared storage at 10Gbps
- All hosts are connected to a shared switch at 1Gbps
- The media server is on a dedicated server and is connected to the same switch as the Hosts
Any idea of what may be causing this really slow speed? I have been speaking to the symantec support staff but its been going no where.
