Hi all,

I am using ABB for quite a while now, but never really needed to use the restore function. I've always only needed a couple files.....

I'm currently trying to restore a whole disk (1.7TB of data). It's going, but i don't see speed of more than 32 MB/s.

I do have 10Gbit NIC in my server as well as in my DS1816+ and going thru a Cisco 10Gb network switch.

Needless to say that at an average of 15MB/s, restoring 1,7TB is gonna take some time......

Do you guys have any idea why it would not go any faster???

Thanks

so a "bare-metal" restore then? On a machine or a VM?
Well, it's a Windows Server 2019 Virtual Machine running in QEMU/KVM on an Ubuntu Machine. Although it's a VM, it's not being backed up as a VM. It's considered a physical machine in ABB

Fair point. So it's using an agent to back up and you are doing a "baremetal" restore inside a VM machine.

Guess that will depend on a few things now. Communication to your NAS, drives in your NAS, array type, how powerfull is that hypervisor host etc.

I don't think it's a physical bottleneck as I've ran a CrystalDiskMark and i had the following results

Also, backup speed goes well in excess of 250MB/s. Even Sometimes exceed 350MB/s.

I understand restoring would take longer but i feel like 15MB/s is quite slow....

NAS Config:
6 times 4TB WD4003FFBX-68MU3N0 RED PRO, SHR with 2 drive fault tolerance (Healthy as of now), btrfs. Single 14TB volume.

Some mid performance SSD

Only Guest OS Running:

6 cores allocated,
32GB of ram
C drives is a qcow2 virtio on physical SSD
D Drive (the one I'm restoring) 3TB qcow2 Virtio on a 6TB Exos Enterprise HDD.

Guess the HW element is not the bottleneck then
