Flags for cpio commands that the SAP tools use to write files to a tape volume.

Syntax: cpio_flags = <flags>

Default: -ovB 

The option B causes a block size of 5KB to be used. You can also use a higher block size, such as 64 KB (if cpio permits this for your hardware platform) to increase performance when writing to tape.

The block size in cpio_flags and cpio_in_flags has to be the same.
