R1Soft stuck backup causing high CPU / IO load (when job isn’t running)

First, attempt to restart the agent using cdp-agent restart.

If that completes, then do…

hcp -l

[root@alfa accounts]# hcp -l Idera Hot Copy 6.6.2 build 56 (http://www.r1soft.com)

hcp1 * Real Device: /dev/sdc1 Virtual Device: /dev/hcp1 Changed Blocks Stored: /home2/.r1soft_hcp_sdc1.cow_hcp1 Mounted: – Time Created: Wed May 02 19:00:18 BST 2018 Changed Blocks: 1214.38 MiB (1273364480 bytes)

If this outputs a virtual device, then you can remove that instance…

hcp -r /dev/hcp1

Then if needed, restart agent again
