Use different "Load Balancing" for FULL and INC Backups

Idea ID 2837586

Use different "Load Balancing" for FULL and INC Backups

The "Load Balancing" (min-max Devices used) is fix for a Backup-Specification.
On a FULL Backup (30 TB, a lot of systems), it makes sense, to set "Load Balancing" to "1-16" (or higher), but this settings are used for the INC Backup (only 1..2 TB) too. This will lead to 16 VTL-Tapes with nearly no data on them.

If we have the possibility to set:
  Load Balancing Full: 1-16
  Load Balancing Inc: 1-4

this will reduce the amount of used (and now filled) tapes.

The later following copy-job will be more efficient, because we don't need to load 16 tapes, with nearly no data on them, we will load only 4 Tapes, and have some data to transfer. 


bye...
Stefan
