experiencing very slow performance on DAT40X6

my backup with an dat40x6 within a new hp proliant ml530g3 only gives me a performance of about 9MB/minute with Veritas BackupExec 9.1. Can anyone give me a hint how to receive a normal performance? Anything to do with the block- and buffersize in Veritas? What are the optimal settings for this tape?
Thanks, Thomas.

Re: experiencing very slow performance on DAT40X6

Hi Thomas,

We have provided a couple of good performance trouble shooting guides that should help you, links below, this makes use of the performance tools in LTT to help identify the performance bottleneck.

Post your findings here if you need further help.
