Media and device performance and troubleshooting
The following items are performance and troubleshooting best practices:
Use the performance-tuning documents available on the NetBackup support Web page.
Use only a dedicated server for the NetBackup master server. Do not use a server that hosts other applications or one that stores data. Plan periodic maintenance for all of the backup servers.
Consult the Troubleshooter in the NetBackup Administration Console or the NetBackup Status Codes Reference Guide for all error conditions:
Always install the latest NetBackup release updates that are available from Veritas.
Verify all SCSI-related operating system configuration files (such as the Solaris st.conf file), when you install system release updates.
For problems with devices, consult the vendor for firmware upgrades and consult the NetBackup hardware compatibility list for supported firmware levels.
Do not use the NetBackup DISABLE_RESOURCES_BUSY touch file.
Do not disable the operating system TCP_NODELAY functionality.
