Overview

As an administrator, you can configure the CPU priority and processing power that the inSync client can use during backups. Druva recommends that you set the CPU priority between 5 and 6 for inSync backups.

The following table lists the CPU priority that you can assign to a profile and its impact to inSync client.

CPU priority Impact on the inSync client
Between 0-3

The CPU priority is set to low. Assigning a lower CPU priority might increase the time required for backup.

Between 4-7 The CPU priority is set to normal. Druva recommends that you set the CPU priority between 5 and 6 for inSync backups.
Between 8-10 The CPU priority is set to high. Assigning a high CPU priority might affect the performance of other applications.
Note: 
  • If you allow users to update the CPU priority for the backup process, the CPU priority that the users configure overrides the CPU priority that the administrator configured.
  • You can assign CPU priority to inSync through profiles. You cannot do this on an individual user level.
