Symptoms

The release of 2013.06.05.0.1.x code, included new support for replication analytics. Prior to this release, if was very difficult to monitor the rate or amount of data being replicated from a source to a target.

The new features included the following.

The inclination is to go into analytics and start all of these utilities to get an accurate measurement of throughputs, bandwidth, and time to completion.

The problem is that the replication data shows significantly slower values than what was expected, or what the connection can operate at.

In this example, we see initial replication over a dedicated 10GB connection replicating at only 50 Meg/sec (parsed)
