Ah! Maybe I'll turn compression _off_, then. The DLT is far bigger than
any filesystem I'll be backing up....

I would assume an Octane is a bit faster than a SPARCclassic or an Indigo^2.
Probably faster than a Challenge L 4xR4k/150 for this, too. Maybe I'm just
not going to be able to make this thing stream with the hardware I have.
Has anyone some suggestions on what "rescue-compatible" hardware might be
fast enough? My SGI Challenge L with 2xR10k/195 instead of 4xR4k/150? An
Indigo^2 R10k/195? Sun Ultra 1 170e?
Or ... If you're using DLT and keeping it streaming, what have you got the
DLT connected to?
