AIX equivalent to Windows "snapshotcachelocation" option when using TSM image backups on AIX clients

We are currently running TSM image backups, (e.g. dsmc image backup /disk01 -snapshotcachesize=10), but this sometimes fails because of lack of space available in the Volume Group. The problem is that when the backup runs it creates a new temporar...

de-duplication performance improvement request
