I used a 15/30 DLT on a 500 MHz Alpha with a single 18 GB disk and the
DLT was faster then the disk. The problem is lots of small files = lots
of metadata work. I had to turn off hardware compression to make the
tape stream.

I think the system disk and possibly the CPU are to slow. My Octane R12k
300MHz with newer and faster 18 GB disks can keep the DLT streaming most
of the time.
