TSM Server: Netfinity 5500R 2 processors, 1 GB RAM, Giga bit,
CLient: NEtfinity 7000 4 processors, 1GB RAM, WIN NT, ORACLE7.3.4 ~
Cisco network switch.
Our backup time is a litlle over 6 hours approx 17 MB/sec. Previously on
TSM 3.7 we used to see max 11MB/sec but with TSM 4.1 and WIN2000 it is 17M
