The Question is:
I' ve got a TL891 under VMS 7.2-1 with a performance up to 2GB/Hr.
I read the manuals and it say that the performance must be 30GB/Hr.
Here is the command which I use to backup with tapes type III and IV.
$ init/media_format=compaction $10$MKA400: 000788
$ Mount/media_format=compaction/Fore $10$MKA400:
Is something wrong??
Why I have this bad performnace??

The Answer is :
Most (all?) bandwidth values cited are either the peak performance
or the peak sustained performance, actual transfer rates can be lower
due to other performance-limiting factors, including the system bus
speed, the SCSI bus speed, the source disk speed, the available
system performance, the process quota settings, the level of
fragmentation on the input device, I/O contention, and a plethora
of other potentially contributing factors.
As you have not included details on the SCSI bus configuration,
the source device, the process quotas, the available system
resources, etc., no specific answer is possible.
For a procedure to review performance, please see the performance
manual. For the recommended process quotas, please see the System
Manager's manual chapter on BACKUP. For system tuning, please see
the AUTOGEN mechanism (and FEEDBACK) and associated documentation.
If your input disk is fragmented, defragment it.
If your system configuration simply lacks the required I/O bandwidth
(eg: a SCSI-1 bus is limited to roughly 4 to 5 megabytes per second
aggregate, and a PCI-33 bus cannot exceed roughly 132 megabytes per
second aggregate), you will need to upgrade the I/O bandwidth and/or
the system configuration.
