LTO 6 compression enabled

We have an MSL 6480 tape library with LTO 6 drives. This feels instinctively like a dumb question, but can anybody tell me if Ultrium 6 drives come with hardware compression enabled by default? I can't seem to find anywhere either in the RMI or using LTT to enable/disable compression or even verify that it is being used.

Thanks, Joe

You can see this in the drive details.

However, it depends on your data if it is compressable or not.

Strange. The front panel of our 6480 doesn't show information that detailed for our drives. Would there be any other way to get this information?

I take that back. I just looked again and the information is there. Thank you very much.
