Hi there,

We are experiencing some horrible performance on backups with an Ultrium LTO3.

The speeds are generally no more than 2 megs per minute... horrible.

The unit itself is found and listed, and can load tapes etc etc.. so the OS does see it.. its just really bad backup speeds. Syncsort tells us its a linux driver issue for the device.. i suspect thats not it, because i cant find anywhere to get an updated driver for it. (M1500)

Does anyone have any ideas where we could start looking to see why these speeds are so atrocious?
