Previously, my VS iData Agent was taking what one might call a "reasonable" amount of time to back up (it would complete in my typical backup window of overnight). As of this past monday, it's now slower than writing the data out by hand . . . last night's backup (started 7 PM) is still running, and at 69%, as of 4 PM. Throughput is something like 0.017 GB/hr.
any thoughts on what could be making this happen? I changed the "capture metadata" option on Tuesday, but I first noticed the problem the day before that (I'd killed the running backup in order to change that setting and change the schedule). Prior to that, the backups seem to have been running normally; I'm not aware of any changes over the weekend that might affect this.
Now, once more, I must ride with my knights, to defend what was--and the dream of what could be!
