Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager
As an administrator, one of your concerns will be the impact of System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) data transfer operations on system and network resources. The primary data transfer operations are:
Replica creation. This occurs once for each protection group member.
Change tracking. This is a continuous process on each protected computer.
Synchronization. This occurs on a regular schedule.
Consistency check. This occurs when a replica becomes inconsistent.
Express full backups. This occurs on a regular schedule.
Back up to tape. This occurs on a regular schedule.
Understanding these operations and DPM processes will help you establish reasonable expectations for DPM performance.
