      What about "holdingdisk no" for a start?

      As you only have on physical write head "dumping" to the vtape (or
      holdingdisk) per time I assume that any "parallelism" isn't that much
      worth here.

      Just a quick guess, correct me on this if needed ...

        I prefer "Estimate Time", I think it is easier to understand what is really
        done at this phase.

        This is needed for amreport to parse old log file.
