Pinned topic GPFS share/deny modes and gpfs_set_share

‏2013-06-18T09:59:49Z | gpfs undocumented


libgpfs provides a function that somehow helps applications running atop GPFS set sharemodes similar to what windows does when it opens a file - gpfs_set_share. Unfortunately, this function seems to be undocumented. I didn't manage to find any description of it in the latest GPFS Administration and Programming reference and the gpfs.h header doesn't contain much useful information. Could you please guide me, where I can find a good description of what the exact behavior of this function is and how it can be used? Is it generally safe to use it when it's not documented?
