Hello folks.

 

We have been running retrospect with a sont storstation for over a year now without any major issues. Recntly though the speed perfoamnce of our backups have taken a serious five and we have done abit of fault finding to address the probelm but come up with no leads as to why it has gone so slow.

 

we were backing up 71.2GB in around 8hour 40 mins at a speed of 310 MB per min...recntly our back up stats are changed dramatically without any serious increase in data backup size. We are now backing up 75.9GB in 10hours 40 Mins at a speed of 266MB per minute. Although we have under a 4GB increase it should take an extra 2 hours.......doea anyone have any ideas.

 

version: 6.5.350

It's a bit hard to tell not being at your machine, but offhand, such an occurrence usually is indicative of thrashing. The added backup size may have increased the amount of memory needed to the point that the working set is larger than the available physical memory such that you are paging to death. I'd try adding memory.
