Virtual (SQL)server impaired by residual snapshot after Veeam backup

Written by Ingmar Verheij on June 11th, 2012. Posted in Performance testing

Recently I had to troubleshoot a SQL server that performed nightly batch jobs for a management information system. Under normal conditions this required 6.5  hours but this was suddenly increased to 11.5 hours. An increase of 75%!

Because of this delay the information wasn’t presented on time with a lot of implications.  Several departments where asked what has changed in the past days, of course the answer was “nothing”.
