Filesys::SamFS ^

Description

Filesys::SamFS makes the SamFS API available to Perl. SamFS is a HSM (Hierarchical Storage Management) Filesystem; it manages files in two storage levels - a cache on disks and an archive on removable media like magneto-optical disks or tapes.

SamFS is a product of Sun Microsystems, Inc. For more information, please refer to

Download

You can download Filesys::SamFS from CPAN and from my website.

Prerequisites

perl 5.005_03

While it is quite possible that this module will work with earlier versions, it has only been tested with this version.

SamFS

Tested with versions 3.3.0-40, 3.3.1-15, and 3.5.0-28. NOT TESTED WITH 4.x by the author!

NOTE

The author does not have access to a SamFS installation anymore. It is thus vitally important for him to receive YOUR feedback about any if small problem you encounter.

Because it is very hard to develop test code without the ability to test it, additional test code written by YOU is very welcome.

Build/Installation

Standard build/installation supported by ExtUtils::MakeMaker(3)...

        perl Makefile.PL
        make
        make test
        make install

If you run into problems because you older SamFS does not define some of the new features, try running

        perl Makefile.PL -DOLD_SAMFS

Note that the ndevstat() call in the API only works for the superuser. Consequently, t/03ndevstat.t will fail unless it is run by root. You can do this with this command:

        su root -c '/usr/ccs/bin/make test'
