Issue

Byte-by-byte verification is enabled for optimization of one or more volumes.

Impact

Optimization jobs will run slower and storage performance will decrease when byte-by-byte verification is enabled.

Resolution

Data Deduplication is using a strong cryptographic hash to detect duplicate chunks. In most situations, this level of verification is not required. It is recommended to disable byte-by-byte verification.
