Slow backups due to high sync times

When encountering very slow incremental backups even on low or no changes in M365 items (e.g. a mailbox), check for min/max/avg sync times of items in the logs. Navigate to the VB365 log folder C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup365\<ORGANIZATION>\<JOB NAME> and run the following PowerShell command to search in the logs for sync times which are over 1 second.

select-string "Sync time: [^0]" *

This is an example output:

PS C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup365\Logs\<ORGANIZATION>\<JOBNAME>> select-string "Sync time: [^0]" *
Job.<JOB NAME>_2022_04_14_08_59_59.log:2732:[14.04.2022 09:00:08]   59 (8132)  Sync time: 143.7938527
Job.<JOB NAME>_2022_04_14_08_59_59.log:2737:[14.04.2022 09:00:08]   49 (4600)  Sync time: 324.8092703

Usually sync times are way below one second but of course there can be a few exceptions. However, if you get a lot of results from above query with values far greater than 1 seconds, you should double check your environment, e.g. if you’re not using a direct connection for your proxies. In case of doubt, open a support ticket with Veeam for assistance.
