Veritas File System KM for PATROL can now be integrated with Veritas Volume Manager KM for PATROL.

Support of all Linux platforms in addition to the previously supported Solaris, HP-UX, and AIX platforms.

Monitoring Features:

VxFS Checkpoints, VxFS Snapshot file system, and file system fragmentation are monitored by Veritas File System KM for PATROL.

Monitoring can now be enabled in clustered nodes.

KM failover with Veritas is now possible.

Custom events can now be disabled from the KM.

The time during which the debug information is logged can now be set by the user.

Changes and Improvements

Performance has been improved to support large number of Veritas File Systems.

Look and feel: The Veritas File System KM better matches the look and feel of other High-Availability KMs (Veritas Volume Manager & Veritas Cluster Server)

Monitoring Features: Quota monitoring now covers group and checkpoint level quotas.

The delay required to perform a discovery following an Agent restart has been substantially reduced.

Application Classes

The following classes are no longer available: VFS_CONTAINER, VFS_FS_CONTAINER, VFS_FILESYSTEMS, VFS_KERNEL, VFS_QUOTA_USERS, VFS_SNAPSHOT

Parameters

The following parameters were removed since they only covered Solaris Platforms when VxFS file systems laid out on native disk partitions: VFSActiveServiceTime, VFSActiveTransactions, VFSBusyTimePercent, VFSWaitQueueServiceTime,VFSWaitTimePercent, and VFSQueueLength.

The following parameters were removed: VFSCurrentMountPoint, VFSMountStatusText, VFSConfigDetails, and VFSVolumeName. Information is now available in the InfoBox of the VFS_FILESYSTEM application class, respectively in the "Mount Point Current", "Mount Status", "Options", and "Volumes" fields.

The VFSSize, VFSFragmentation, and VFSQuotaPolicy parameters were removed since they are respectively covered by the VFSFileSystemSummary, VFSFragmentationSummary, and VFSQuotaSummary parameters.

The following parameters were removed since they are no longer required for monitoring: VFSInodeAttributes, VFSIntentLogStatus, VFSJournalStatus, VFSReadIORate, VFSServiceTime, VFSInodeSize, VFSInodeText, VFSVnodeAttributes, and VFSWriteIORate.
