Subject backup times
Author rebel_rob_98

I have two databases on a server in a co-lo facility that I backup
nightly to our office.

Database A is approximately 600MB in size.
Database B is approximately 40MB in size.

The times for the backups are:
Database A approximately 6 hours
Database B approximately 15 hours

Both backup scripts use the -g switch for the gbak. I am running
Firebird 2.0.12855 (Classic) on both machines (Windows 2003 on both).

The scheduled times have some overlap but not by much. The Database A
begins at 10:00 PM while Database B begins at 2:30 AM.

Why would Database A backup so much faster given it's size, in
comparison to Database B?

Thank you for your time,
