dat24x6 autoloader: display during write.

During writes, there is a decimal number to the right, something like "Write 1.1". I've seen that number be anything from 0.9 to 1.5.
Can anyone tell me what that number is measuring?
Can it give me any useful information about the tape, or the drive, etc...

Thanks.

Hi Scott,

check this link http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=lpg50043

Write x.y S The drive is writing data to tape. "x.y:1" is the cumulative compression ratio since power on, or since the compression ratio was last cleared. For example, "Write 2.1" means a compression ratio of 2.1:1. The compression ratio is only displayed after about 1 MB of data has been written since power on.

Let me know if have further questions

Regards
