Re: bart 2.2 thread_count

Hi @MattGorham,

 

The use of the thread_count parameter is to use multiple worker threads for backup and restore using the BART.

 

It can be set in the bart.cfg file or passed through command line option while taking the backup.

 

It takes the backup using multiple parallel workers, thus reducing the backup time.

 

Best practice is to use this option for faster backup. Please refer below link for the reference :

Please let us know in case of any issues/queries.

 

Regards,

Sudhir
