NetBackup 8.1.2 / 3.1.2 Hotfix - Performance degrades if Catalog is stored on VxFS filesystem (Etrack 3969341)



If NBU Catalog is stored on VxFS filesystem then catalog backup performance might be degraded



If the NetBackup Catalog is stored on VxFS filesystem then catalog backup performance might be degraded at 8.1.2



There are potentially two parts to the solution.

  1. Install the hotfix noted below to prevent new backup images, of large size, from being written in the highly fragmented manner.
  2. The existing backup images will expire over time, causing the fragmented files to be deleted. Optionally, the existing image files can be defragmented to improve performance immediately. Detailed steps for this solution are documented in the following KB article.
