Retrospect Experts:

It was mentioned recently on this list that using a too-slow network
connection for remote client backups could cause a DAT drive to sit idle
waiting for data, thus resulting in excessive "shoeshining" of the tape
heads.  In the Retrospect log entry, "Total performance: XX.X Mb/minute
with XX% compression," is there some rule-of-thumb value below which
shoeshining could be expected to occur on DDS-4 drives?  Would a different
(albeit arbritrary) value perhaps apply to DDS-2 devices?

Thanks much,

Mark E. Ingram
