This parameter indicates a value which serves as the multiplier for the number of concurrently active duplication jobs that can access a single storage unit. This parameter applies to tape media.

Storage unit configuration includes limiting the number of jobs that can access the resource at one time. (The Maximum concurrent write drives value.) This value specifies the optimal number of jobs that the Resource Broker can consider running on that resource.

This parameter helps administrators ensure a balance in the following situation:

For example, a particular storage unit contains three write drives. If the TAPE_RESOURCE_MULTIPLIER parameter is set to two, then the limit on concurrently active jobs is six. Other duplication jobs requiring the storage unit remain queued.

Default: 2
