I'm using VMware ESXI 5.5.0 2068190
I'm using IBM System X Server with 2 six-cores CPU's, and 32 GB RAM.
I have 6 VM's (Windows servers 2000,2003,2012)
I have 2 datastores:
1-st - RAID 5 with 5 SAS 10K RPM HDDs
2-nd RAID 5 with 5 SAS 15K RPM HDDs
I'm trying to use GhettoVCB to backup my VM's with the next scheme:
I have backupstore folder on one the first datastore.
GhettoVCB script is configured to backup VM to that folder
I use Enable_compression=1 parameter to compress my backup. (I Know that i'll have some problems with it's uncompressing but i learned how to solve it)
Than after VM's backup is compressed script is copying to NFS share.
When i'm making backup of virtual machine with Thick mode HDD, with 200GB Size, and operating system Windows Server 2012, backup takes less than 5 minutes.
But it's compression on esxi takes 96 minutes. Compressed backup size is 6 Gb
Than i'm making backup of virtual machine with Thick mode HDD, with 300GB Size. and operation sytem Windows Server 2003 R2. Backup takes 5 minutes.
It's compression takes: 486 Minutes!!!!!!!!!
Compressed backups size is 47 Gb.
But the most interesting is the next
Virtual machine with two 34 GB HDD's. Windows server 2000. Backup Takes 6 minutes. But it's compressing takes 515 minutes.
Can somebody advise me??
What's the problem with it?
I've attached log files to three vm's i've wrote upper.
I'f somebody need any additional info about Host or VM's please ask me and i'll give it.
