If you backup highly compressed files, it carries with it anywhere between
1-5% overhead overall.
Example: 400GB LTO-3 Tape
Example: ~367GB and the tape is FULL:
XXXXXX 9 44 12/10/2009 04:46 12/10/2009 10:13 hcart3 367050755 0
MPX INFINITY N/A FULL
You can disable compression on a tape drive using the mt command, however,
NetBackup will re-enable it:
