The algorithm used to choose which dump image to send from the holding disk to the taper. Note that the taper can only send completed dumps from the holding disk to tape. So as each dump is sent to tape, the taper must select a new dump from completed dumps, not from all the remaining dumps.

Possible values:

first 
First in - first out. (default)
firstfit 
The first dump image that will fit on the current tape.
largest 
The largest dump image.
largestfit 
The largest dump image that will fit on the current tape.
smallest 
The smallest dump image.
last 
Last in - first out.
