DPM 2016 UR4 and Firestreamer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently migrated from a DPM 2012 R2 local SQL instance to DPM 2016 UR4 connecting to a separate SQL server and we backup to tape using Firestreamer.  The child server is 2016 running on a 2012 R2 parent.  I am having a repeat problem where the tape backup eventually slows to a stop, all other jobs will stop synchronising etc. and the server in general slows to a crawl.

    Restarting the firestreamer service does not do anything

    You can't restart any of the DPM services

    RAM and CPU usage are normal, however I cannot see disk usage in Performance Monitor, the various sections are blank

    Reinstalling Firestreamer works for a few days and then the issues reoccur

    It happens across different disk sets.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    If firestreamer mysteriously fixes the issue without doing anything else I would like to recommend opening a ticket with firestreamer to help troubleshoot.
