thegizzard Posted September 1, 2014 Share Posted September 1, 2014 Is there a way to bound crash plan to one cpu? I have 2 CPUs and I want to run at 90% without crippling the whole server. I am trying to speed up the initial upload to crash plan. im sure there is a command line for docker to do that.. but you can go into the settings of crash plan and tell it how much cpu to use. I guess my problem is crash plan is a CPU hog. What I really need is a scheduler the that will allow me to give crash plan 90% CPU for specific hours of the day. Like Midnight to 5am and Noon to 4pm. I've looked at some of the properties files and I cannot see where those settings are held. Anybody have a clue? You should be able to set Crashplan for a time period when back-ups can occur. I use the windows client tunneled in through telnet and it works. Just set it up as you need. Just be careful if others set their back-ups for different times, they may never occur. Got it. That is the easy way. But I always do things the hard way. What I want to do is always have crashplan running. But throttle the CPU available to it during my peak usage times. I found out how to do part of it. The setting is located in the my.service.xml file The value I want to change is: <idleThrottleRate>30</idleThrottleRate> The idle value is always used on Linux So I want to make a script to go into this file, adjust the value from 30 to 90 when I want it to go fast and vice versa when I need my expect heavy usage... So these commands will change those values: #FAST sed -i -e 's/<idleThrottleRate>30/<idleThrottleRate>90/g' /mnt/user/appdata/crashplan/conf/my.service.xml docker restart CrashPlan #SLOW sed -i -e 's/<idleThrottleRate>90/<idleThrottleRate>30/g' /mnt/user/appdata/crashplan/conf/my.service.xml docker restart CrashPlan What I do not know, is how to run these two sets of commands when I want to... I am not sure how to create a script or where to put it if I want a script to run. Any ideas? [ *************** EDIT ***************] Never mind all of that. My issues was CPU usage. I got it sorted by correcting the Crashplan settings for Dedup and Compression. Now she is humming along at low CPU utilization. Thanks again! Quote Link to comment
