Sometimes we have the same performance as you mention, but that's when 10
clients are backing up at the same time...
We compared our AS/400 TSM setup with our German division who uses the NSM
box (Unix) and our performance rates were better... We also compared with
another comapny who uses ADSM on OS/390... same results...
Like any platform, you need to fine tune... and monitor...

Subject: TSM / 400 performance.
I want to share with you information about TSM performance, using an
as a TSM server. What I discovered is that performance is NOT tied to the
network speed, NOT tied to the tape drive speed, BUT to the files size and
to the client performance. I did not use client compression as I verified
that this feature punishes overall performance.
I saw a 4 GB/hour speed, with files whose average size was about 3 MB
For bigger files, better performance.
Saludos / Regards / Au revoir
