Hi, I am trying to figure out what value I should assign for parameter 'Maximum Concurrent Jobs' when configuring storage unit. How can I come up with a value for 'Maximum Concurrent Jobs' that will best optimise performing backups for my setup?
I am storing backups onto a disk storage unit as part of disk stage 1. The disk storage unit is a ZFS config and consists of a VNX connected over fibre to netbackup media server.
My understanding is that multiplexing is used for backing up hosts to tape drive. So if I firstly backup to disk first what value should 'Media Multiplexing' be set to in the Atributes tab when setting up schedule.
Also if I use multi streamed backups to disk and then relocate images to tape later will this have an affect on restores? Do I have have to perform a Multi-streamed restore?
