Volume level is a lot quicker, not sure why. It looks like some of the fussing around with downloading from VmWare doesn't go on in the logs (but that could be verbosity.)
I am doing VADP of 83 VMs, SAN Mode. I allow 5 Snaps per instance. The Volume Level backups fly, the Disk Level backups are ridiculously slow at first, but seem to ramp up near the end.
Also notice the Client Side Dedupe doing a lot of work on the VS Proxy during Disk Level. I am thinking about disabling it, since it is a MA with a Dedupe Database on good disk anyhow. (V9)
There's an evil monkey in my CommCell!
