Hi every one,

We have database(4.6TB) in SQL SERVER 2008 R2.On weekly bases we take full backup from this database.It used to take 7-8 hours for the full backup.but now It is running for 21 hours and still it is not completed.How can I check what is the problem?


Thanks

Do you take tape backup? What are the wait types your backup session is hanging on? Check with your backup team to verify the backup throughput (mb/secs).

Check the whether database have grown in recent past ?
Are you using same disk/storage?
I/O utlization? but for this you need to have some historical data for this

Check the throughput of the SAN system as well as configuration of HBA queue depth.
See the virtual file stats if there are high IO read and Write stall( sys.dm_virtual_file_stats).
Capture IO, Memory and CPU counters
Check Memory Related Perfmon Counters
SQLServer: Memory Manager\Memory Grants Pending (Consistent higher value than 0-2)
SQLServer: Memory Manager\Memory Grants Outstanding (Consistent higher value, Benchmark)
SQLServer: Buffer Manager\Buffer Hit Cache Ratio (Higher is better, greater than 90% for usually smooth running system)
SQLServer: Buffer Manager\Page Life Expectancy (Consistent lower value than 300 seconds)
Memory: Available Mbytes (Information only)
Memory: Page Faults/sec (Benchmark only)
Memory: Pages/sec (Benchmark only)


Checking Disk Related Perfmon Counters
Average Disk sec/Read (Consistent higher value than 4-8 millisecond is not good)
Average Disk sec/Write (Consistent higher value than 4-8 millisecond is not good)
Average Disk Read/Write Queue Length (Consistent higher value than benchmark is not good)
