Hi all,

I would like to discuss the topic about Maximum and Fixed Number of Readers (Stream Readers). This option can be set up at Schedules window (Auxiliary Copy Job Options).

Is there any rule, that says when there is  better to have Maximum number of stream readers or just set only one allow stream reader? Especially for NDMP and ordinary File System agent aux jobs?

For anyone looking at this thread and curious, we do have some extensive documentation on streams and all of the inclusive factors here (and if it leaves anything out, please let me know so I can pass that feedback along):

Looking forward to seeing everyone’s thoughts and practices :nerd:
