Make Consitency Check jobs Faster
Time taken by Consistency check jobs have been always a pain when it comes to enterprise level backups with huge Datasources and high amount of churn. i have seen CC jobs going for days failing and restarting. We can only expect the data to grow in future which calls for a better solution for these CC jobs

Consistency check on 300GB vm is running for almost 23 hours. 1-2 TB of vms consistency could easily run for several days

Agree. Consistency check on a large volume (multiple TB) is a big issue. They cloud run for days and while they are running you have not backup. That's not acceptable There must be a better solution.
At least if the recovery points were still created while the consistency check is running would help a lot.
Allowing restores from existing recovery points whilst CC is happening would help too.

I would rather see a Checkpoint mechanism Implemented for Consistency Check(CC) jobs as an interim solution and let go of CC completely one day..
The CC takes long on more-number-of-files scenarios and a checkpoint on file base will help.
