Measure Spectrum Protect File Scan Performance

  • 1.  Measure Spectrum Protect File Scan Performance

    Posted Tue December 08, 2020 01:03 PM

    I have a customer will billions of files on Isilon.  I need a way to programmatically collect file scan (files/second) performance.  Data lake incremental backups are taking months and moving very limited amounts of data.  We've taken steps to mitigate performance, but need to demonstrate to management that the file scan rate of the Isilon is contributing to the problem. 

    I need a technique to programatically measure the file scan performance 

    Thanks in advance for your ideas

    A journal-based backup would certainly be helpful.   How would I add a journal-based backup to an Isilon?

    Hello Michael,

    we developed an ISP add-on called MAGS, that fits your problem with scanning/backup millions or billions of files.

    Maybe this could be interested to you.
