we are in the process of bringing a new tape library into production. Previously we just trusted a new device to be "good" as restoring all our production tapes would need 100 TB avaiable somewhere.
With the feature i found out that the new library seems to have one defective drive - fresh tapes, only written once show CRC errors every 15 TB or so, only on one of the drives. I would have never found this so easily without the verification.
The one thing i wonder is why only one drive of the tape library is used when multiple tapes are selected...

Thanks for warm feedback, glad you liked the feature!
As for the drive usage - verification job picks a drive to use at start and sticks to it by design. If you want to utilize several drives, just start several verifications in parallel!
