BACKUP_TAPE_IO_SLAVES specifies whether I/O server processes (also called slaves) are used by the Recovery Manager to back up, copy, or restore data to tape. When the value is set to
true, Oracle uses an I/O server process to write to or read from a tape device. When the value is set to
false (the default), Oracle does not use I/O server process for backups. Instead, the shadow process engaged in the backup accesses the tape device.
