SHow commands Unsupported commands to reveal various

supplementary information.

SHow Archives PolicySet NodeName Undocumented ADSM server command to show

archives for a given Node within a Policy Set.

SHow BUFVars Undocumented ADSM server command to show

database buffer pool global variables.

SHow CART Undocumented ADSM server command to show

Cart Info from mounted volumes.

SHow CONFIG Undocumented ADSM server command to show

Configuration.

SHow CSVars Undocumented ADSM server command to show

client schedule variables.

SHow DBVars Undocumented ADSM server command to show

database variables.

SHow DEV Undocumented ADSM server command to show

Server Development Team + Server

Contributors.

SHow DISK Undocumented ADSM server command to show

DISKfiles datas.

SHow LIBrary Undocumented ADSM server command to show=

the status of the library and its drives

Meaning of fields:

busy=3D0 means the drive is not mounted or

even acquired by ADSM.

busy=3D1 should reflect ADSM using the

drive (Query MOunt). But this could

result from drive maintenance. Fix by

trying 'cfgmgr' AIX command, or killing

the lmcpd AIX process and then doing

'cfgmgr' or '/etc/lmcpd'.

online=3D0 means the drive is "offline".

In Version 2, this will only be if the

polled=3D1.

In V3, you can update a drive to be

offline, in which case the polled

flag will be 0.

polled=3D1 means that ADSM could not use

the drive for one of three reasons:

- The drive is loaded with a Non-ADSM

volume (eg a cleaner cartridge, or a

volume from the other ADSM server);

- The drive is unavailable to the

library manager (usually set this way

by load/unload failures)

- The drive cannot be opened (some

other application has it open, or

there's some connection problem, etc)

polled=3D1 means the server is polling

the drive every 30 seconds to see when

the above three conditions all clear.

(It also means that the online flag

should be 0.) When the conditions

clear, it turns online back to 1 and

the drive should now be available to

be acquired.

Note that if no tape drive is currently

available, ADSM will wait rather than

dispose of client and administrative

tasks.

Is there any way to 'force' the TSM Server to utilize more of the physical memory instead of the pagefile ?



We have a case where the Windows Task Manager shows us that the TSM Server process is using about 650 MB of memory('memory usage' tab) and about 840 MB of virtual memory('VM size' tab). Since this server has about 4 GB of physical memory we would have liked to see TSM utilize more of that memory instead of the pagefile since we suspect that the server would then operate faster.



Anyone know how or if we even should 'force' the server to utilize more physical memory? :)

BTW: The show commands are undocumented, not supported and used at your own risk.
Do not use wild card with any of the show commands, it will crash the TSM Server.

Good Luck,
