I'm not personally using the ratio, but I can offer some examples.
In general, the ratio defines the minimum number of available (or existing)
copies required to accommodate active hold requests (on the same record)
before a renewal is allowed.
A ratio value of "1" (1/1) means there has to be at least 1 copy for every
A ratio value of "2" (2/1) means there has to be at least 2 copies for
A ratio value of ".5" (1/2) means there has to be at least 1 copy for every
A ratio value of ".75" (3/4) means there has to be at least 3 copies for
every 4 holds.
Hope this helps,
