I am running hyper-v backups using the commercial Hyper-V Client.
This Hyper-V Sever has about 50 VMs running.
When I run a backup it runs about 8 simultaneous jobs in parallel. This is causing a very high load on my server.
Is there any way to limit the number of simultaneous jobs so I can keep the load at a normal level. It would be nice to say run only 1 or 2 jobs (VMs) at a time.
I did set the “Maximum number of simultaneous jobs per client” to 1 but this setting does not work in a Hyper-V VM job because it appears each VM acts as its own client. This setting works on a regular physical server.
Is there any way to force max jobs on the Physical Hyper-V server so it applies to the physical server and not at the VM level.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
