Allow concurrent backup jobs
(RN316 OS 6.6.0)
I have an estat connected 8TB drive to which I backup the NAS.
Some shares are a multiple TBs and a backup can run for a long time.
I have other backup jobs to load PVR files onto the NAS which need to run daily, and runs for an hour or so.
I also would like to run smaller adhoc jobs from time to time.
However when a big backup to the esata drive is running other jobs queue.
Allowing concurrent backups to run would be nice.
I suspect someone made the assumption that concurrent jobs would just run slower, so limited it to one to get the job done quicker.
But if a 2 day job is running, slowing that down briefly, while a short time-dependent job runs for slighly longer is not an issue.
Additionally, the ability to flag jobs with a run time priority would be helpful, e.g flag the two day job as low, the time-dependent job as normal, so you could also do an ad-hoc job as high (for example, I really need to free up 10gb right-NOW).
