DPM 2012 Exchange 2010 Backup Recovery Point Speed creation RRS feed

  • Question

  • DPM is very new to me.

    I would like to see more information on the creation of the recovery point.

    For instance I would like to see speed at which the recovery point was created.

    Is there more detailed reports I can use?

  • Hi,

    Recovery point creation and recovery has lots of variables for exchange.  The DPM Storage pool calculator can help give you a good idea based on disk / network speed.

  • Thanks for the info, is there no formula I can use with perfmons or see it in logs? Estimates is just estimates and I would like some definitive answers that I can present and not just a guestimate.

    I mean network, fibre connections along with different hardware configurations will give different outputs and if you cant see the speed its not really worth me investing time to POC a deployment, I cant prove anything that would value me or the client, I feel it is lacking in those type of reports.

    I have a test deployment and it works great but I cant see the info I need.

  • Hi,

    There are simply too many variables.  For exchange,  even the time of day is a variable as less mail will flow during lunch time which means fewer logs get created and need to be transfer during that recovery point time.
