Peformance Issue (gzipping on a NFS partition)

view story

http://forums.cpanel.net – Hello everybody, i'm experimenting a performance issue on my Backup Server due to the way cpanel makes backup. THE LANDSCAPE: On my network I have a local backup server which I use to store backups of all my cpanel server (about 20). The speed of the internal Network is 1Gb LAN ethernet on a dedicated netcard. Every cPanel Server have a NFS mount on "/backup" which is a dir created on the backup server WHAT CPANEL DO DURING A BACKUP: Start making a copy of the account within "/backup/day/username/" which mean: -> SEND DATA TO THE BACKUP SERVERgZip/pigZip t (HowTos)
