NetApp NDMP File Server

You can improve the performance of data movement operation for NDMP and NRS clients using the following guidelines:

  • Ensure that the MediaAgent managing NDMP operations does not reside on the CommServe.
  • Ensure that multiple data streams are used for data transfer to the MediaAgent.
  • If the tape is attached to a NAS client, the indexing operation is completed on the MediaAgent. Ensure that the MediaAgent has sufficient memory available for indexing.
  • Use the syssat command to review the CPU consumption.
  • When the backup is running, use the following command to fetch information about MediaAgent performance:

    netstat -a

    The send_q information will determine whether network queues are becoming full.
