I have a very specific question. It is my first question here so I hope to be doing it correctly.
I have a Quantum DXi 4510i that a client is using for the backup solution. This appliance is interesting because do deduplication of data. The problem is that when the disk gets to a threshold limit (550GB of free space at disk) enter into a throttle mode and the data ingest is being done veeery slowly (around 100k/s) the regular speeds are around 70MB/s!!
There are tw obvious solutions from my point of view:
1) Increasing the disk space 2) Deleting some old backups
The problem with the first option is that it will take a looot of time to be done by the support so meanwhile we need a workaround solution. This workaround solution is deleting some backups. But this is taking a lot of time because before of deleting old backups they need a confirmation from the HQ. Meanwhile they have no real backup of their servers...
That is the current situation and I have think of another solution that is changing the threshold limit but I cannot find the option in the configurations menu. But googling I read it is possible to change the threshold value from 5% to 95% this would be great in order to have backups a few more days till the OK from the HQ arrives.
Sorry for the long message, thank you all by your time!!
