In my infrastructure, I have two Commvault servers:
simpana - CommServe+MediaAgent
simpana-ma01 - MediaAgent
Commvault is used to backup various applications(VMware, SAP HANA, PostgreSQL, MaxDB and more)
Yesterday I noticed that backup jobs on simpana-ma01 are running very slowly. The average throughput of one job did not exceed 18 GB/hr. While searching for the cause, I discovered that the simpana-ma01 server has very low performance. The server responds to commands for a very long time. At the same time, the load on the processor and RAM did not rise to critical values. There was a feeling that there are problems at the level of the disk subsystem.
Next, I noticed in the Commvault job manager a running job DDB Verification for simpana-ma01. It was the middle of the day, and the task starts on schedule at 03:00AM. At that time, it took more than 12 hours to complete.I thought it might have something to do with it and canceled this job. After the task was canceled, the simpana-ma01 server immediately came to life.The throughput of the backup jobs immediately returned to normal values.
Now I can say with absolute certainty that performance problems are directly related to the DDB Verification task, since the problem recurred today. The job started at 03:00AM is still running. The process is very slow. I am seeing performance issues on the simpana-ma01 server.
What can I check to solve this problem? Any help would be welcome.
A week ago we updated to version 11.20.22. Probably, problems appeared after installing these updates, I did not notice performance problems before.
On the simpana server, DDB Verification is performed in 3-5 hours.
