DETAILED DESCRIPTION  

Script : reportSpaceDetails
What it does : This script generates a report of mounted SAN Space details of hosts in question, where diskgroup names # are of type xxx.gnr.x . This however is not mandatory as all it is doing is matching against string # "gnr". If diskgroup name is something else then that can be used as the search string. 

Usage : reportSpaceDetails -file -cl 

use -cl switch if the hosts are clusters, in which case format the file as follows.
<clusternode1>,<clusternode2> 

 

REQUIREMENTS 

Operating System Linux,Solaris 

Interface Perl 

Fabric Operating System Unix 

Other None 

 

NOTES (INCLUDING LIMITATIONS) 

Veritas VxVM needs to be used to manage the SAN disks as the script uses veritas VxVM commands(vxprint to be specific).

Works with linux & solaris hosts that are using SAN disks. The diskgroup name should be of type xxxx.gnr.xx . This however is not mandatory as all it is doing is matching against string "gnr". If diskgroup name is something else then that can be used as the search string.. 

This is quite useful to audit the hosts for SAN space utilization details and use the report for effective space utilization tasks.
