DFM Max Simultanous Backup Jobs

Dear Community Members,

I would like to now if there is a limitation of number of job running with DFM/PM 4.0

Re: DFM Max Simultanous Backup Jobs

Yes, in PM 100 is the queue limit for update jobs and 25 for baseline jobs.

Re: DFM Max Simultanous Backup Jobs

Hi,

Thanks for you response, Do you know if it's possible to increase theses limits

Regards

Re: DFM Max Simultanous Backup Jobs

Yes it is, there is a hidden option to do it however I wouldn't do that as every protection job requires some amount of memory and I remember when we had more than 40 PM jobs running it took my DFM system to it's knees after eating all 4Gb of RAM.

So it's better to not have all the PM jobs running at a given time and 100 seems to be upper limit of it, unless you have 16 cores nehlam processor with 64GB of memory on your DFM server.
