Ubuntu Server Backup
« on: 04-21-2010, 18:05:34 »
I just built a Ubuntu based server, and I want to use it as a home network backup, storage server. I can get on the server from other computers, but transfering files takes a good deal of time. Is there anything you can think of that would cause slow transfer?

I have 3:
1TB drives SATA
2.6Ghz Dual Core
6GB RAM

any thoughts?

What does "a good deal of time" is ?
For which file size ?

What is your network?
Wifi, 100Mb Ethernet, 1Gb Ethernet?
What protocol do you use to transfer files, samba, nfs, ftp ?

All of this have an impact.
To give you an estimate, I use an old Pentium dual 2 Ghz with 4 Gb ram and 5 SATA2 1To hdd with stripping in my NAS, over an wired 1Gb lan Ethernet network.

Open the timeshift application via top left Activities menu. ...
Select backup destination. ...
Select how often you wish to perform the system backup and how many backup snapshots you wish to retrain before the first backup is overwritten.
