DPM 2016 Block size / Tape performance RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    Could you please add an option to increase the block size for the tape drive? Backup speed with LTO-5 is really bad with the default 64KB block size.

    I already increased the buffer size in registry to 30 (from 10) which reduced the backup from a single server by 17 hours already - but I am pretty sure this would be faster again with a tape block size of 256KB.
