Tivoli Field Guide - TSM for Space Management for UNIX-GPFS Integration

White paper


This article series covers the integrated functionality of the IBM products GPFS and TSM for Space Management (HSM). This first part deals with the GPFS policy-based theshold migration in detail with all involved components on the GPFS and the TSM HSM side, as well as the setup and configuration of such an environment for the different GPFS and TSM for Space Management versions.

The explained approach of a policy-based threshold migration can be used in very large storage installations, instead of the classical HSM-controlled threshold migration, to be able to handle up to billions of files and scale out with the number of nodes added to a GPFS cluster.
