Skip a client during backup job

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

 

 

I have a backup script that runs nightly. I noticed that one machine takes an extremely long time to backup sometimes because it is running some software that takes up 99% of CPU.

 

 

 

I'll usually notice this in the morning and want to just skip that machine and go on to the next.

 

 

 

How can I skip one client and go on to the next?

 

 

 

I'm running Multiserver 6.0 on win2k

 

 

 

thanx

I think (Retrospect is running right now so I cannot verify...) there's a setting to skip the client if backup performance falls below certain level.

 

Skip function, however, is not available. I agree it could be usefull (if it worked better than Stop function that freezes Retrospect sometimes)

Hi Mikee,

 

There is a script setting under Options:Client Execution called Speed Threshold that allows you to enter a minimum throughput value. If backup performance falls below this value for a particular client, Retrospect will move on to the next one. The default is zero, which allows a preoccupied client to stop the whole show. I set it to 20 or 30 as a matter of course.

 

(The PC that's sitting at 99% CPU usage -- is it running one of those 3D screensavers?)
