I have done some testing on 3.3.7pl3 using a P3 1G with
RedHat 7.3 as server with an HP DLT8000 9 slots
changer, some other pcs with RH 7.3, 1 Sun Blade 1000
(Solaris 8 SPARC), 1 Compaq AlphaServer DS10 (Tru64
All connected via a Fast Ethenet switched lan.
After some tests on various tape blocksizes and buffer
sizes, i have found that
the Linux clients are surprisingly fast ( > 4000 Kb/s
sustained ) but both the Solaris and Tru64 clients are
horribly slow ( < 1000 Kb/s ).
Need some help on raising Solaris/Tru64 performances
because they hold 95% of our > 1 Tb storage.
