Abstract:

This report analyses a problem which has been facing the DRCS central computing facility for a number of years the continual growth in demand for magnetic tape storage within the computer room. It summaries the various techniques which have been proposed and implemented to reduce the rate of growth and finally describes in detail a software scheme which has alleviated the problem. The basis of the scheme is to categories all tapes as either active or inactive, permitting the latter category to be stored outside the computer room. Author
