Modifying the CPU priority for backups
If your administrator assigned appropriate rights to you, you can modify the CPU priority for inSync backups. If you set the priority to a low value, backups take longer time to complete. If you set the priority to a higher value, the performance of other applications might be affected.
To modify the CPU priority
- On the left navigation panel, click Preferences.
- Click the Backup Preferences tab.
- From the CPU priority list, select the priority that you want to assign to the backup process.
Note: The first backup is a full backup and requires the most processing power. All subsequent backups are incremental in nature and require low processing power. Druva recommends that for a full backup, you assign a CPU priority of 8. Thereafter, change the CPU priority to 5.
