Cloud Archive Jobs are Slow


How to determine if network bandwidth is the cause of slow cloud archive jobs.



Cloud archive jobs are slow and/or take a long time to complete.


Cloudhook uses multi-threading and caching to make this process as fast as possible, but often the problem with a slow cloud archive is due to a reduced bandwidth connection to the cloud provider.


Determine your bandwidth or network speed via, by running the following from the command line:

# /usr/bp/bin/
This should result in a speed around 70 Mbits/s, but would not handle reasonable cloud archiving with speeds less than 20 Mbits/s.

If the bandwidth test reports a slow network speed, this may indicate network congestion or an inadequately-sized connection. Contact your network administrator to have this investigated.
