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 configured by inSync administrator||On the inSync client|
|Between 0-3|| |
By default, the CPU priority is set to low. Assigning a lower CPU priority might increase the time required for backup.
|Between 4-7||By default, 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||By default, the CPU priority is set to high. Assigning a high CPU priority might affect the performance of other applications.|
- 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.

- On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Manage > Profiles.
- Click the link of the profile for which you want to assign CPU priority for inSync backups.
- Click the Laptop Backup Schedule tab.
- In the Laptop Backup Resources area, click Edit. The Edit Profile window appears.
