A portion of a dump on a storage volume. Dumps are split into parts as they are written. Use splitting to make more efficient use of storage. For example, if you have a tape size of 10 GB, the only way to get a dump of 12 GB onto tape is to split it up into chunks and use spanning. Control part size with the part_size and part_cache_max_size parameters in a tapetype (or dumptype parameters tape_splitsize, split_diskbuffer and fallback_splitsize in Amanda 3.1 or earlier).
