DPM backups/restores slow RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few sites with DPM servers at each site.  All the sites run well.  DPM backups/restores run about 40-80% of my 1Gb connection.  All servers are on 1Gb connections.  The switch ports are 1000 Full Duplex.  There is no throttling as this is a LAN backup.  I have a physical server with DPM installed.  I have another physical server running hyper-v.  The DPM server is backing up my VM's at the VM level and 1 of those VMs at the file level as well.  The restore of these files is about 25GB/hour.  This is very slow for 1Gb connection speeds.  Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can check to figure out why this site is going slow on backups/restores?

  • I believe the admin at the site was modifying the RAID controller settings and this affected the speeds.  not sure if there is a co-relation - but his DPM restores/backups are now functioning properly.  Thanks for the help and sorry for wasting time.
