Backup Starts Very Fast, Then Slows Down

Post by Gabe » Mon Mar 07, 2005 10:53 pm

Hi Everyone,

I'm wondering if it's caused by something that I do wrong.
I'm making a backup of a Dell Poweredge 800 with mirrored SCSI drives to an external USB2.0 drive.
With gzip, it starts the backup at around 100 MiB/min, then it slows down to 30MiB/min. Without compression, it starts at 1.97 GiB/min, and goes down to 24Mib/min.
The slowdown starts after it has copied around 150MiB.
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Gabe
