  1. Have you sen a crashplan central slowdown since applying SRU11? I went from ~20Mbps upload to <4Mbps and can't seem to isolate the problem. I am going to boot into a previous BE and see if this helps but curious if this is a widespread problem.

  2. I’ve been enjoying Crashplan on Solaris 11 but the default SMF service (svccfg import /opt/sfw/crashplan/bin/crashplan.xml | svcadm enable crashplan) soes not work on Solaris 11. Any ideas?
