Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are using Veritas Volume Manager KM v2.5.01 on any platform.
This patch replaces Patch P1756 and includes all patches released for v2.5.01 so far.

What does it fix?

VVM-223: When the cumulative I/O stats returned by Veritas Volume Manager commands became too large (more than 231), the related parameters failed and stopped collecting data. Thus, metrics for rate-based parameters such as ReadKBytesRate, WriteKBytesRate, IOKBytesRate were not properly reported for volumes, plexes, disks devices and subdisks. Veritas Volume Manager KM for PATROL now stores the actual read, write or total I/O collected since the last collection cycle to avoid values reported by these parameters to grow cumulatively and to reach their limitation.

VVM-231:Commands were not properly reloaded when using the Reload Commands KM menu, which resulted in an error to be displayed in the System Output Window.

VVM-241: Veritas Volume Manager KM for PATROL has been improved to support all PATROL Agent v10+ versions and prevent failures due to a compatibility error.
