  1. STILL More performance Issues (24+ hours for a backup?!)


    Ok, So I've tried everything everyone has suggested so far. I've got new 3com
    NICs Installed, I'm running at full duplex, Autonegotiate is off on both
    ends, one of the servers is a dual PIII Xeon with 524mb of memory and its
    running at 6mb per minute!! What is the deal? If anyone has any ideas please
    help!

    I have an exabyte Autoloader with two drives (All on separate channels)
    there are several servers being backed up but the main ones I'm having problems
    with are all Proliant 1500's, Windows NT SP5, dual 166mhz processors, 128mb
    Memory, Smart 2/P controller RAID 5. The backup server is a Proliant 850r,
    Windows NT SP5, Backup Exec 7.3 REV 2575 (I just updated BE as well as the
    autoloader drivers), Pentium Pro 200, and 128mb memory.

    What kind of Switch/hub are you using ? Is it configured to 100 Mbit/Full
    Dublex. Try to connect a server by using a X-cabel and do a backup - This
    will tell you wether the Hub og Switch is your problem !

    FYI,

    Go to devices tab and right-click on the tape drive. Make sure you increase
    your block and buffer size. It worked me for me. I'm now getting 300-400megs
    per minute transfer rate.
