Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Set-WBPerformanceConfiguration

Sets the current volume backup performance settings.

Syntax

Parameter Set: OverallSetting
Set-WBPerformanceConfiguration [-OverallPerformanceSetting] [-PerformanceSetting] <WBPerformanceConfiguration> [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: Volume
Set-WBPerformanceConfiguration [-Volume] <WBVolume> [-PerformanceSetting] <WBPerformanceConfiguration> [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-WBPerformanceSetting cmdlet sets the current volume backup performance settings. The settings are applicable only for volume backups; these settings are not applicable for files, folders, system state, or applications. The settings apply globally to all volumes in a backup, or to specific volumes.

Parameters

-OverallPerformanceSetting

If present, specifies that the changes affect the global performance setting. If not present, then the Volume parameter must be specified.

-PerformanceSetting<WBPerformanceConfiguration>

The valid settings are:

--AlwaysFull: The time to create a backup is proportional to the size of volume being backed up. This can be set at a global level for all volumes or specific for some volumes.

--AlwaysIncremental: Increase the backup speed by just tracking the changes between the last and current backup. This option is not recommended for servers with disk-intensive operation which may experience reduced disk throughput on volumes included in the backup. This can be set at a global level for all volumes or specific for some volumes.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • SwitchParameter, WBVolume



    Indicates either a global setting or the per volume performance setting.



Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • None

Examples

Example 1: Set the global performance setting

This command sets the global performance settings as incremental for volume backups.


PS C:\> Set-WBPerformanceSetting -OverallPerformanceSetting AlwaysIncremental

Example 2: Set a specific volume performance setting

This example sets the performance settings for a specific volume.

The first command stores the result of the Get-WBBackupSet cmdlet in the variable named $Backup.

The second command sets the AlwaysFull performance setting on the second volume of $Backup.


PS C:\> $Backup = Get-WBBackupSet
PS C:\> Set-WBPerformanceSetting -Volume $Backup.Volume[1] AlwaysFull
