How do you find how much space is left on a tape?
With compression, it's hard to know how many tapes a job requires. How does
one find out how much space is left on a tape after a job has completed? I
can't find a way to get statistics on what percentage of a tape each job
uses.
Thanks in advance,
Tim

Re: How do you find how much space is left on a tape?
The Veritas position is that since there are so many different compression
alogorithms and since h/w compression takes place after BENT has anything
to do with it, that this cannot be done.
If you use Software Compression, you could always do the math on each job
step and add them up to get a close approximation
