[Bacula-devel] Feature request: enable/disable compression depending on storage device (disk/tape)

Item 1:   enable/disable compression depending on storage device (disk/tape)
  Origin: Ralf Gross ralf-lists@xxxxxxxxxxxx
  Date:   2008-01-11
  Status: Initial Request

  What:   Add a new option to the storage resource of the director. Depending
          on this option, compression will be enabled/disabled for a device.

  Why:    If different devices (disks/tapes) are used for full/diff/incr
	  backups, software compression will be enabled for all backups
	  because of the FileSet compression option. For backup to tapes wich
	  are able to do hardware compression this is not desired.

  Notes: http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.sysutils.backup.bacula.devel/cutoff=11124
	 It must be clear to the user, that the FileSet compression option must
	 still be enabled use compression for a backup job at all. Thus a name
         for the new option in the director must be well-defined.
