Hi! I have some questions about the arcmain utility that I'm hoping someone could answer... I couldn't find documentation to specifically answer...
1. In order to use the "multistream" option, is an arc server required? (I assume yes)
2. As far as ARC servers go, I believe both TARA and the Data Mover Agent act as arc servers.... correct?
3. Is there any kind of standalone arc server? In other words, a way I could use multistream archives without heavy coupling of BAR/DM?
4. Does a multistream archive have any performance enhancements over, say, multiple cluster level backups, where each arcmain instance is pointing to the node that contains the AMPs? Or, is it mostly for convenience/easier and accurate configuration and management?
Essentially, I'd like to have a "named pipe" style multi-stream arc without using TARA or Data Mover.
