me and my team have dueling with SEP and netbackup about the backups time and speed.
We use Windows 2008R2, SEP RU7 and Netbackup 7.6. Its under a Vmware 6.0 with 10gb ethernet cars 10gb nfs.
Using this enviroment with SEP Full we can do a ~340 GB backup in 10 hours. Changing to “basic protection for servers” only AV module the time goes to ~5 hours. With no SEP installed (in media and client) the 340 GB is backedup on 1 hour and 30 minutes. ?
We used a exlcusion that came on AV policy to not verify files under backup, and also set a policy to exclude netbackup binary folders to let netbackup proccesses alone and not be bothered by AV.
How can i test if the AV is not scanning netbackup processes ?
Here: https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH92440.html we can see that Symantec has problems with servers that reach
- Average CPU utilization of 35% or more
- Average TCP/UDP throughput of 300 Mbps or more
- Use of NIC teaming technology
I wonder if anyone has gone trhough this could enlighten me?
