Hi Andrei,


Try playing with concurrent.snapshots.threshold.perhost. (empty is treated as 1).

Hi Rohit,

I have updated some of those options to increase the timeout to 2 days rather than a few hours
by default.

However, these options relate to the timeout of the process.

I was wondering if there is an option to allow simultaneous snapshotting of volumes on a single
VM? I would like all volumes of the vm to be copied over to the secondary storage at the same
time, rather than one after another.

Cheers
