Run manually backup with savegrp

Posted in Networker Legato at 3:22 pm by alessiodini

It’s possible run a backup manually from backup server with savegrp command:

(with parallelism specified)

savegrp -vvv -l full -c -N 4

(without parallelism specified)

savegrp -vvv -l full -c

the “-vvv” option returns a very long details during backup

Testing network performance backup

Posted in Networker Legato at 2:57 pm by alessiodini

On a new Legato ( 7.2.* ) client if i want make a backup test for see the network performance i can use the bigasm directive:

1) the pool entity must be created
2) the group entity must be created
3) the client entity must be created

On the client i create a .nsr file that contains:

bigasm -S5000M : testfile

Then i create an empty testfile:

system01# touch $PWD/tesfile

Now i configure the schedule of the client as “always full”
After configured bigasm , when i launch the backup , i can see a pure network throughput
