Issue:

Nightly Back-up Takes Unusually Long (20-plus hours) to Complete.

Solution:

There may be several reasons for this behavior.  The most common are:

  • Logging for Scheduled Jobs has been turned on for an extended amount of time. Turn off all logging if you are not troubleshooting a particular issue.
  • Session Tracing has been left on for an extended amount of time.  Session tracing should only be left on for troubleshooting purposes and immediately turned off after gathering a sample of the traces needed.
  • The job may have devices with large configuration files, like Cisco WLC or Fortinet devices.
    •  WLC devices if running the wrong command (show running-config) and should be using TFTP 
    •   ​Fortinet devices. No work around, but they should be isolated to their own job(s).

 

These are the most common instances. Additionally, network connectivity, firewalls, database running out of room, local hard drive getting low on space and / or other environmental issues such as the size of the deployment (30,000 nodes) can play a part in sluggish behavior.
