Running FastBack on virtual machines

Preventive Service Planning


Potential performance issues may be encountered when running FastBack on virtual machines


When the FastBack application (or any component) is installed on a virtual machine, it may encounter performance issues even if "preferred" hardware requirements are met. This might happen when a customer has allocated the required resources, but did not perform "reservations".

Here is an example of an improperly configured virtual machine:

No CPU or memory was reserved, potentially causing CPU starvation and usage of swap file instead of RAM. In order to ensure proper FastBack operation, reserved amounts of CPU and memory must meet the minimal hardware requirements.
