Pinned topic Migration to external pool: Is there a way to keep track of file size?

‏2012-09-27T15:29:08Z |
Hi,

when a file has been migrated to TSM/HSM as an external pool I understand that an 'ls' command against the migrated file will return the stub size. Is there a way to keep track of the original file size?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers,
Daniel

    When a file is migrated to HSM, the file size stays the same, but the space allocated (du) for the file is now either 0 or the stub size.

    This is clear.
    Thanks.

    You could use dsmls to work out the size of the file after it has been migrated.
    However, for many files this is probably like hitting a small nut with a huge hammer.
