brentsallee Posted June 26, 2009 Report Share Posted June 26, 2009 I am receiving extremely slow performance in the backup details under Retrospect 8. I am hoping it is a setting or configuration I have set that I can change to improve the performance speed. Here are some details of my configuration. Mac OS X Server (10.5.7) 2 X 2 Ghz Dual-Core Intel Xeon 2 GB DDR2 RAM Retrospect v. 8.0.736.1 Clients: Mac OS X (10.5.7) and Windows XP (SP3) The Server has three internal SATA drives installed. The first drive is the system drive, the second is used for file sharing (shared files are save on it), the third drive is being used for Time Machine and Retrospect backup. Time Machine backs up the second drive every hour to the third drive. I have Proactive Backup active in a script that backs up all of the client machines on the LAN (all on 100 or 1000 gigabit ethernet). Retrospect is set to only backup client machines on the LAN. When I was running Retrospect 6 w/ a similar script I was backing up at 1200 MB/min average. Under Retrospect 8 I am performing at 40-55 MB/m. Here are some more details of the script. Type: Proactive Backup Rule: Back up everything but Music Files and Cache files Options: Thorough verification on Data compression off Matching: checked - Match source files against the Media Set checked - Don't add duplicate files to the Media Set Obviously the backups are taking FOREVER and sometimes break. I would like to increase the speed of the backups. Hopefully this will be enough info for your help and suggestions. Thanks, Brent Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
