  • 3 MAs with all the same jobs, one uses 8TB more than the others.

    We have 3 Media Agents (all identical in hardware and storage) and do an Aux copy on all of our Storage Policies from the Primary to both of the other MAs.  All copies of the Storage Policy follow the same retention rules.  One of the secondary MAs has consumed all the space available while the primary and other secondary still have 7-8TB free.  I ran the "Jobs in Storage Policy Copies Report" and used some Excel-fu to determine that a couple storage policies where the major culprits.

    Storage Policy SITE LOCATION 1 (primary) SITE LOCATION 2 SITE LOCATION 3 Difference From Primary
    FileSystem_1yr 410.44 406.17 450.21 -39.77
    FileSystem_3yr 2318.82 2306.03 2658.45 -339.63
    FileSystem_7yr 35201.96 35769.76 38737.52 -3535.56
    SQL_DB_0.0.93.2557 453.24 450.74 499.6 -46.36
    SQL_DB_7.21.31.366 1269.7 1097.66 1071.59 198.11
    SQL_DB_7.21.62.1095 8282.15 8430.5 9094.95 -812.8
    SQL_DB_7.21.93.0 955.07 949.8 1052.77 -97.7
    SQL_DB_7.90.365.0 864.42 859.65 952.84 -88.42
    SQL_DB_7yr 20.4 20.29 22.49 -2.09
    Universal_14.0.0.0 5508.16 5477.77 6071.62 -563.46
    VM_Snapshot_1yr 20188.53 20177.99 21863.55 -1675.02
    VM_Snapshot_XX1_1yr 79.5 79.06 87.63 -8.13
    TOTAL 75552.39 76025.42 82563.22 -7010.83

     

    Then I looked at all the jobs for the 7yr file storage policy on both MAs and found 7 job IDs that the "Data written" is 100-670GB more on the secondary than they did on the Primary.  The other 850 retained jobs are all very close in data written (<1GB).

    Any suggestions on what I can do to remedy this or what would cause this?  The secondary MA is now full and no new data can be written without pruning off jobs prior to their normal retention period.

    Has DataAging caught up.

    Could you post/upload the SIDBEngine.log from each MA?
