    I am looking for away to limit the resources consumed on a client during the backup. I found Resource Control Groups for Uinux is there something similar for Windows. We have some older Windows systems that may have issues during the backup process and would like to restrict the CPU usage by Commvault.


    We are running V11 SP12

    Hi Gville

    I believe the setting that you are looking for is the following:

    sSDTHeadMaxCPUUsage: Use sSDTHeadMaxCPUUsage additional setting on the client computer to control the CPU Usage during backups

    Additional Setting Doco -

    See if this achieves what you need

    Thank you
