How many clients in your classes and how many jobs per class are configured.

What will happen is NBU will submit a job to a drive and continue until the
MAX MPX value is met either by the class schedule or the stu, then it will
use the next drive, etc.

Look at the 3.4 SAG guide page 275 - 279

Its a much better illustration than the previous manuals.

NetBackup Gurus,
        If I have a storage unit with 4 drives that is configured to
handle multiplexing up to 4 streams per drive, and I have 2 classes,
both configured to multiplex 4 streams, will this configuration send 4
streams to two drives and leave the other 2 drives idle?
        Also, if I configure a class to send multiple data streams, then
set it up to send 4 streams of data (to the storage unit with 4 drives),
will it backup AND restore from the 4 drives simultaneously?
        Thanks for your help.
