Scalability:
Improved BA client memory usage
  • Note: Using the disk cache setting will require additional disk space. The disk cache file can exceed 4 gigabytes for a very large filesystem incremental backup. Therefore, if the filesystem does not support large files, the user will need to enable large file support for the filesystem or use the diskcachelocation setting to point to a filesystem that can support large files.
Collocation of active data
  • Enhancement provides a new type of storage pool for storing only active versions of backup client data.        
Usability:
Administrator Center Enhancements Part 3
  • Update administrator password, cmd line applet, AUDIT LIBRARY/VOLUME, QUERY NODEDATA/MEDIA, MOVE NODEDATA/MEDIA
