The effect of -compress flag in bpplinfo command
When we are taking backup of some data we can specify the status of -compress flag in bpplinfo command , so that backup data can be stored after compression.
Now suppose if we are using some third party smart storage solutions ( which provide their OST plugin to work with NetBackup) then does compression happens at Netbackup side or does compression happens at actual storage side ( i.e the client software).
I think Netbackup do not compresses data by itself , rather if -compress flag is set to 1 , then it specifies to OST plugin that data compression is being requested by user and storage software has to perform compression.
But , I am a bit confused. please help me!!!
