Increasing Chunk Size for Tape Backups
This parameter affects tape backup operations. A higher chunk size gives a better throughput. A lower value for this setting is recommended for frequent checks against slower data protection operations, especially when data is moving across a WAN link.
- From the CommCell Console ribbon, on the Storage tab, click Media Management.
The Media Management Configuration dialog box appears.
- On the Chunk Size tab, click the Agent, and then enter 8 in the Chunk Size (MB) column.
- Granular restores will be slower using this setting, however, large restores will be faster.
- This setting does not apply to database backups where the chunk size is 16 GB by default.
- Click OK.
