RAM Requirements for Large-Scale Environments

In this article

    Amount of RAM used by Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris to process backed-up files depends on the number of files included in the backup. For large environments with great number of backed-up files, use the following RAM sizing recommendations. 

    Note

    If you plan to back up millions of files, consider tuning ZFS system properties to provide Veeam Agent with the required amount of RAM. For example, it might be necessary to change the value of the zfs_arc_max parameter to reduce the maximum size of the ZFS Adaptive Replacement Cache (ARC). For more information, see Oracle documentation.

    If you do not set ZFS system properties, ZFS may fail to allocate the amount of RAM required by Veeam Agent for backup of large number of files.
