How to Stagger Synchronization Start Times

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

To optimize performance, you can offset the start time of synchronization jobs across different protection groups so that all of them do not start at the same time. Offsetting synchronization start times can also be used to optimize secondary protection of another DPM server.

To stagger synchronization start times

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, click Protection on the navigation bar.

  2. In the display area, select a protection group.

  3. In the Actions pane, click Optimize performance.

  4. On the Network tab, select the hours and minutes to offset the start of the synchronization job in the Offset <time> start time by field.

    The maximum allowed value for offset is the same as the synchronization frequency.

  5. To apply your changes, click OK.

    Changing the start time offsets recovery points for files by the equivalent amount of time. This setting does not apply to protection groups for client computers.
