Windows 2003 vmware throughput

Recommended Posts



I have a Windows2003 server and secure so Windows2003 virtual server (vmware).

The data throughput is only 144 MB / Min.

Normal Windows Server create 800 MB / Min.

Has anyone a hint what man could do to speed up?

Drivers, Retrospekt, vmware everything up to date.

I checked our logs for performance of our virtual machines. Though we use 2008 with Hyper-V instead of VMware. Some of our virtual servers are still 2003. Our speeds are more than 900MB/min during the backup phase.


These figures are for quite recent hardware. What hardware are you running on? Performance can fluctuate a lot depending on file sizes and the amount of files. Also I/O is an important factor to consider. Does the vm have enough dedicated RAM etc.?
