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.

Procedure

To assign CPU priority

  1. On the Endpoints console, click Profiles.
  2. Select the profile for which you want to configure folders for backup.
  3. Go to the Edit option at the top right, and click the Endpoints tab from the dropdown. The Edit Profile window appears.
  4. Under the Backup Schedule & Retentions tab, go to the Resource Settings area.
