Check to see if the drives are logged in as F or FL. I believe that you should with the proper driver be able to get them to log in as F-ports which would be preferred (less overhead).

When you say "Arkeia supports the drive directly", does that mean you are not using IBM's tape driver? If not, I would try that. I might also let you disable compression on the drives.
