Changing the Number of Data Readers (VMware command line)

Before performing a backup, you can run the following command to change the number of data readers to use for the backup.

  1. Log in to the CommServe host using qlogin.
  2. Download the update_subclient_number_of_readers.xml file and save it on the computer where the command will be executed.
  3. Run the following command:

    qoperation execute -af update_subclient_template.xml -entity/appName 'Virtual Server' -entity/clientName %client_name% -entity/instanceName %instance_name% -entity/backupsetName %backupset_name% -entity/subclientName "%subclient_name%" -commonProperties/numberOfBackupStreams 7

    Provide appropriate values for client_name, instance_name, backupset_name, and subclient_name.

After running this command, all subsequent backups for the subclient use the specified number of data readers.
