Subject: Re: [Bacula-users] Speed of backups



Try changing your Maximum Network Buffer size in your bacula-sd config.

Something like
Maximum Network Buffer Size = 262144 #65536
Maximum block size = 262144

Keep in mind that this will make your sd unable to read previous
backups, IIRC.

Search archives for this parameter, e.g.
