Does anybody have this list? I'd like to have it so I can better performance tune an environment I have.

Dennis,
The ssdmbs & ssdmbr switches are below. Also within the newer version of BEX, these switches and explanations can be found in the Manage Configuration option under configure -> Enterprise.

dmbr - data mover backup receiver
Parameter Description Usage
--blksize Sets the size of data block written to device in multiples of 32KB. Valid range is 0-999999999. --blksize <number of 32KB blocks>
--cascade Enables multiple stand-alone tape drive use in NetWare backups. --cascade
--chktapepos Enables bsf/fsr to check tape position before writing session header to tape. --chktapepos
--crypto Activates tape encryption and specifies the name of the Key ring containing the encryption keys used to encrypt the tapes content. Key ring name must be between 1 and 48 characters long. Encryption is not on by default. --crypto <key ring name>
--enhio On NetWare, turns on enhanced I/O. It is on by default on all platforms except for NetWare. --enhio
--noenh Turns off enhanced I/O. --noenh
--noperf Disables performance statistics reporting. --noperf
--notpstatus Disables tape position checking in the beginning of a task. --notpstatus
--nwpa Specifies the use of NetWare's Media Manager (MM) for tape mount/unmount operations on NetWare: 0 - use media manager, 1 - bypass after a failure, 15 - bypass all the time.
--screen On NetWare, disables removal of the module's screen. --screen
--seqtwin Activates sequential writing to twin tapes. Sequential writing will be automatically activated if encryption is enabled. --seqtwin
--simeot Sets the number of blocks written after which end of tape is simulated. Valid range is 0-999999999. --simeot <number of blocks>
--srtimeout Sets the socket receive timeout interval. Valid range is 0-999999999. --srtimeout <number of seconds>
--timeline Turns on debug time stamp. --timeline.
--tor Sets the number of times to retry a tape open. Valid range is 0-999999999. --tor <number of retries>
--twinsimeot Sets the number of blocks written after which end of twin tape is simulated. Valid range is 0-999999999. --twinsimeot <number of blocks>
--vrfytimer Sets the timer used for cancellation check during verify phase. Default is 10 minutes. --vrfytimer <number of minutes>
--vrfytwin Enables verification of twin tapes. Valid range is 0-999999999. --vrfytwin
--worm Activates limited support for WORM type media. --worm
-R Sets the maximum size of a circular log file. Valid range is 0-999999999. -R <size in KB>
-d Specifies debug level from no debug at all (0) to highest level of debug (9). -d <level>

SSDSKMAX Simulates the end of disk tape by setting the maximum number of blocks allowed to be written. Default is off. Valid range is 0-999999999.

Thx
Don
