SEP - throttling a backup

Post by » February 6th, 2019, 7:15 pm

SEP Sesam 4.4.3
Data Store (external NAS mounted with 10GB links) on SLES 11 SP4 KVM host

The SEP backup will take a lot of resources during the backup period causing some VMs to become very slow to the point of seeming unresponsive, ie: the MS SQL VM server, Mail VM server, File VM server.

Is there a way to throttle the backup so it doesn't take resources (CPU, bandwidth, etc)? It's OK for the backups to take a longer time so that the VMs are less affected.

Would the Drive, Max channels help? I mean less Max channels?

Thank you.
