Effect of defragmentation on DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    We're planning to schedule defragmentation on some volumes on file servers. These volumes are relatively bigger (4-5TB each). I just wanted to know if there will be an impact on DPM backups after defragmentation, will DPM take a backup of all the changed blocks all over again or will the consistency check compare these blocks and leave them as-it-is?

  • From the archive-bit mechanism used for incremental backups, I don't think it should be a problem if the physical block is changed for a file. Still not sure though, any inputs are appreciated.
