RE: Duplicate function is a lot longer than a backup

We have one channel configured.  

Backups are on disk.  

Servers are identical.  

Compression is being used for the backups.

A few questions come to mind:  

Are you backing up to disk or tape?  

What degree of parallelism (i.e. how many concurrent channels) for both the backup and the restore/duplicate?  

Is the disk or CPU significantly slower on the target server?  

Are you using compression?
