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.

    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.
