SDLT-1 Tape Block Size - Omniback DP 5.0

Howdy,

I am using Quantum SDLT-1 tape cartridges with HP OmniBack Data Protector 5.0, on a Compaq Storageworks MSL5026 Library.
Could you tell me what block size should i use for best performance ? Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
Scrivano

At least not 2K blocks. Try blocks >=8K: 32K, 16K, 8K

Hi,
If your using SDLT220 you can use 64K block size per device,and don't forget to apply an update firmware and driver for this kind of tape.
Try it..
