The subject line really says it all: I'm using tar for backups onto a
4mm SCSI drive. The tar documentation says that a block size much
larger than the default of 20 will give higher throughput, but how
much larger? Is there any way for me for me to figure out the optimal
block size, or at least to get a ballpark estimate, other than trial
Thanks in advance!
