Object storage provides functions that protect against data loss and data corruption. Review options such as:
Versioning - retaining deleted objects for an additional period of time
Verify network requirements
The Model9 agent will fully use the network resources within the available CPU and memory limits. Refrain from using the same OSA card for production workload and backup activities. If possible, use a dedicated OSA card for Model9. Otherwise, if network resources are a constraint, activate your network QOS to manage packet priorities.
Secure network communications
The agent installation specifies how to secure agent - server and agent - object storage communications. Perform these steps If you have not yet done so.
Associate a WLM service class to Model9 components
The agent’s performance is mainly affected by WLM definitions. When associating a WLM service class, consider its effect on policy elapsed time and on the agent’s CPU consumption. See Performance considerations for additional information.
Back up the management server and DB
Back up the management server regularly, excluding the following directories from the backup:
Back up the management server DB using the following command:
