[Bacula-devel] MaximumBlockSize Problem and Question


Hello,

Problem:

Settings like (documented in the Manual)

     Minimum block size = 64K
     Maximum block size = 200K

do not work. Both are defined as size_pint32.
multipliers like K M are not allowed.
don't know if this is intended, 
maybe documentation just a little outdated.


Question:

Can i expect performance improvements (especially for
Copy/Migrate Disk to Tape jobs) by by increasing
"Maximum block size" on File devices in bacula-sd.conf ???

Device {
  Name = FileStorage
  Media Type = File
  Archive Device = /disk0/bacula/files
  LabelMedia = yes;  
  Random Access = Yes;
  Requires Mount = No;
  AutomaticMount = yes;
  RemovableMedia = no;
  AlwaysOpen = no;
  MaximumBlockSize = 1048576;         # 1M
}



Thx
Ulrich
