Media set is configured on

Media set is configured on the basis of your retention policy. Below is the most common practice.

Incremental Media set: 5 days of Overwrite protection and infinite allow append.

Full(weekly) Media set: 2 weeks of Overwrite protection and infinite allow append.

Montly Media set:  2 Months of overwrite protection and infinite allow append.

You may change the above values as per you requirement and avalilability of media.

Configure a policy based job with 3 templates (incremental, weekly and montly)

Select appropriate media set for each template and schedule the job with the help of scheduler.
