Symantec NetBackup removes the oldest images until the low water mark is reached.
A Symantec NetBackup 7.5 master server has a Microsoft Windows policy that protects over 500 servers using the directive ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES. The backup window for this policy is between 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM and is unshared with any other policy. When the backup window for this policy is open, the overall performance of the disk storage unit gets degraded. Which setting should the administrator modify to reduce the number of concurrent streams writing to the disk storage unit to 10 during the backup window?
enable the "Limit Jobs per policy" attribute
