externel tape drive 3280 in linux

Dear  all,

 

i have installed externel tape drive 3280 in redhat linux 5.

 

but currently when i am performing backup, it is very slow. there must be somthing wrong. it took LTO-5 tape almost 7 hours to copy a 150GB data…where as other LTO externel drive on another server can copy in 2 hour. what are the things to check.

 

i did not load any driver. the device is detected as st1 in dmesg.

 

it is new tape drive. i booted the server after powering up of tape drive.

 

thanks once again
