DPM 2010 Services RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a document that explains what all the DPM services and executables do?  I'm trying to determining what would cause performance issues - whether it's a primary backing up a protected server, a secondary backing up the primary, DPM doing house cleaning, contention if both primary and secondary backups are occurring at the same time, etc.
