Subject Re: [firebird-support] gbak speed
Author Marcus Bajohr

from my little knowledge i have: are the db and the backup on different
devices? Or are they both on the raid?
I've reduced the backup time from 1,5 mours to 40 minutes for a ~55 GB
db by simply writing the backup to another physical dev

cheers, Marcus
