We are now going to explore DPM processes. The executable files for these are
all located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\bin . You can view these
processes in Windows Task Manager and they show up in Windows Services as well:
The following screenshot shows the DPM services as they appear in Windows Services:
We will look at what each of these processes are and what they do. We will also look
at the processes that have an impact on the performance of your DPM server. The
processes are as follows:
• DPMAMService.exe : In Windows Services this is listed as the DPM
AccessManager Service . This manages access to DPM.
• DpmWriter.exe : This is a service as well, so you will see it on the services
list. This service is used for archiving. It manages the backup shadow copies
or replicas, backups of report databases, as well as DPM backups.
