Pinned topic Migration to external pool: How to know the result of a TSM/HSM migration?

‏2012-09-27T13:35:59Z |
Hi,

my customer intends to use TSM for Space Management triggered by GPFS ILM.
I understand that triggering a migration to an external pool is an asynchronous operation from GPFS standpoint, i.e. the mmapplypolicy command completes before the migration actually takes place. Am I correct?

I guess the TSM admin console allows to monitor the migration operation. Is there a way to check the results of the migration from a GPFS command?

Thanks in advance for your help.
Daniel

    Assuming you are going to use the dsmmigrate command, following GPFS samples/ilm/mmpolicyExec-hsm.sample
    then I believe the dsmmigrate command will indicate success or failure. The sample script shows one way to handle TSM error messages, you are free to improve on that!

    Take a look at this: https://github.com/gpfsug/gpfsug-tools/blob/master/scripts/hsm/hsm_threshold_callback
