SAVSYS varies a lot by whether or not you are using supplemental groups.
Same media and everything it took 44 minutes to do a SAVSYS when we had a
lot of supplemental groups. Removed all them and it dropped down to 4
minutes. Seriously. Called IBM before removing the supplemental groups.
They could definitely point it to that. Something to do with PRTPVTAUT.
We use very fast LTO3 (and that's getting dated) tape drives. Disk isn't
much faster, if any. Of course, our tape controllers are always on a
different bus than our disk controllers.
