Subject: [EXTERNAL] 3580 LTO7 Tape drive

Hello guys

I'm trying to speed up a nightly save to a 3580 LTO7 stand alone tape drive
and would like some advice with the following:

a. Will specifying COMPACT(*NO) on the SAVLIB CMD expedite matters ?
we now use DTACPR(*DEV) and COMPACT(*DEV)

b. On a 3580 spec web page I found a remark pertaining to Full Hight vs.
Half Hight
models . see remark No.7 on this page

Is a Full Hight model Faster the Half Hight? or Vice versa?
