You can change the maximum backup speed of Database Backup (DBS) by specifying the Maximum Concurrent Threads for Full Data Backup and Backup network speed limit parameters.

Parameter description

  • Maximum Concurrent Threads for Full Data Backup

    This parameter is in positive correlations with the backup speed and the performance impact on the source database. After you specify this parameter, all backup links of physical and logical backups are affected.

  • Backup network speed limit
    If you specify this parameter, the backup speed is limited by network bandwidths. This parameter supports only MySQL and Oracle backup links. It is set to 0 by default, which indicates that no upper limit is imposed.
    Note If you want to limit the network bandwidth of a backup, we recommend that you prioritize this parameter over the Maximum Concurrent Threads for Full Data Backup parameter

Procedure

  • If a backup schedule is not created, perform the following operation:

    When you create a backup schedule, specify the maximum number of parallel threads for a full backup and Backup network speed limit parameters. For more information, see Configure a backup schedule.

    Change the backup speed
  • If a backup schedule is created, perform the following operations:
    On the backup schedule details page, click Backup Time and Advanced Settings and specify the maximum number of parallel threads for a full backup and Backup network speed limit parameters. For more information, see Manage backup plans. Edit parameters
