Say you have over 900 clients to backup from 5:00pm - 8:00am...20 LTO3
tapes drives in a library. 99% of the environment is Windows including
my media servers / Master node and I am running multiplexing (20) in
some cases. Right now 90% of all my jobs kick off at 5:00 on the dot.
Seems that many of my jobs when they kick off will sit in a Queued
status for 15 - 20 minutes at the kick-off, the active jobs will
increment every few seconds. I understand I'll have jobs queued once
the multiplexing hits the threshold for number of jobs per tape, or if
all my tape drives are being used. But was just wondering if I
staggered my start time would help load up the tapes / writing to tape
any quicker, or simply go to an active state sooner? But unfortunately
I am running on a 100mb network, but it is segregated from my production
