HSM: SAMFS Recycler Does Not Mark "c" Flag on Cartridges Which Meet Recycler Conditions (Doc ID 1641342.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 14, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) and StorageTek QFS Software - Version 5.2 to 5.2 [Release 5.0]
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)


Can't recycle obsoleted cartridge space.

The sam-recycler seldom detects and marks a 'c' flag on cartridges which meet recycler conditions.

From recycler log noticed there were only very few cartridges marked with 'c' flag and recycled in two months.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following shown in the /etc/opt/SUNWsamfs/recycler.cmd file:

   LIBRARY_FAMILY -hwm 60 -mingain 40 -vsncount 2  -mail root
