    Hi All,

    I'm facing slowness issue while backing up Nutanix AFS SMB share. The data size is 8 TB (UserDocs) profiles and the full backup completes in 200 hrs. where backup is running 10gigs network with 4 theread and 2 data nodes. 

    Scan phase takes 10 hrs and backup phase takes more than 200 hrs. 

    Does anyone have exprienced on Nutanix file share backups ? Your help much appriciated! Thanks.

    Hi Piyush

    From the description, your primary issue sounds like a "Read" access issue to the Nutanix AFS SMB share, as "Scan phase takes 10 hrs and backup phase takes more than 200 hrs. " - which doesn't sound correct.

    I would recommend to engage Support to assist with the review to determine why the Read operation on the Client is soo slow.

    I'm having the same issue, 1st I thought it was the AV, I disable it and still the slowness continues, did you found a solution?

    Not really. We just upgraded the AFS version from 2.2 to 3.5 and seeing some improvement but still issue not reolved completly. I'm working with Support on these. I'll update if we got any resolution on it.
