Exabyte for LMFS backup
Date: Wed, 12 Jun 91 14:41 EDT
I've noticed that several people are using exabytes for LMFS backups. I
have a comment and a question regarding this.
The comment (actually a warning): Don't try this with the exabyte on a
Sun running 4.1.1. It will crash your sun!
The question: What is the proper bpi to use for a LMFS backup? I've
tried 54,000 (as stated in Sun's doc) but a complete backup still wants
to use more than one tape for 500 MB of data. I've also tried 43,200
bpi. But, the backup is still > 1 tape.
Any help would be appreciated.
Meta-. tape:*cart-max-length* or tape:get-cart-guaranteed-capacity
I cannot remember what the hack is, but you can override the default
tape lengths fairly easily.
The folks to ask are S-graphics customers. They are often very intense
exabytes tape users and I'm sure make full use of the medium.
