NAME

  dxlsm	- Graphical interface, also called the Visual Administrator, for the
  Logical Storage Manager (LSM)

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/bin/X11/dxlsm [-options]

OPTIONS

  -bg color
      Specifies	the color of the window's background (color displays only).
      The default is white.

  -display dispname
      Specifies	the display screen on which dxlsm displays its window. If the
      display flag is not specified, dxlsm uses	the display screen specified
      by your DISPLAY environment variable.  The display variable has the
      format hostname:number.  Using two colons	(::) instead of	one (:)	indi-
      cates that DECnet	is to be used for transport. The default is :0.	 For
      more information,	see X(1X).

  -fg color
      Specifies	the color of the text (color displays only).  The default is
      black.

  -geometry
      Specifies	the width, length, and location	of the dxlsm window. If	the
      geometry flag is not specified, dxlsm uses default values. The geometry
      flag has the format =[width][xlength][x][y]. For more information	about
      the screen coordinate system, see	X(1X).

  -h  Brings up	a help screen that displays the	dxlsm flags.

  -mono
      Uses a monochrome	display	instead	of color. Instead of using color to
      differentiate icons, the display uses bitmap patterns of varying tex-
      tures and	shades.

  -title string
      Specifies	the title for the dxlsm	window.

  -xrm resource
      Sets the specified X resource for	the current dxlsm session.  See	the X
      DEFAULTS section of this reference page for a list of the	resources you
      can set.

  -N  Suppresses a reminder message that is issued by default when dxlsm is
      used in a	TruCluster Production Server or	TruCluster Available Server
      configuration. Unless suppressed,	this message is	displayed each time
      dxlsm starts up and whenever the configuration is	changed.


DESCRIPTION

  The Visual Administrator (dxlsm) is a	graphical user interface (GUI) for
  LSM. The Visual Administrator	interface provides the user with graphical
  elements such	as icons, windows, and menus to	ease the task of manipulating
  the LSM configuration.  Note that the	Visual Administrator software is
  included with	the base system	software, but it requires a separate LSM
  license to run.

  The graphical	interface is designed primarily	for disk and volume opera-
  tions.  For example, you can use it to add and rename	disks; to initialize
  and remove diskgroups; to mirror volumes, and	to create, change, and remove
  volumes, plexes, and subdisks. You can also use dxlsm	to display informa-
  tion about disks and volumes.	In addition to the disk	and volume opera-
  tions, the Visual Administrator provides a limited set of file system
  operations.  For example, you	can create and mirror file sytems.

  The Visual Administrator interface provides a	consistent view	of the LSM
  configuration. If a configuration or its objects are changed while a Visual
  Administrator	session	is running, the	icons representing those objects
  automatically	alter themselves to reflect such changes. The icons adjust
  themselves in	this manner, regardless	of whether the changes were made by
  the Visual Administrator itself or by	another	LSM interface.

  Before you can start the LSM Visual Administrator, you must be logged	into
  an account that has superuser	privileges. To start the Visual	Administrator
  from the command line, enter the dxlsm command as follows:


       # dxlsm

  When dxlsm comes up, it displays the main LSM	Visual Administrator window,
  called the root window, and the View of rootdg window.

  Mouse	Buttons


  A two- or three-button mouse is required in order to use dxlsm. The follow-
  ing table describes the default mouse	buttons, referred to as	the MB1, MB2,
  and MB3 buttons.

  Icons


  The Visual Administrator interface uses icons	to represent the following
  LSM objects:

    +  volumes

    +  plexes

    +  subdisks

    +  disks

  Disk groups are represented as view windows rather than icons.

  The icons representing LSM disks, volumes, and other objects belonging to a
  particular disk group	are all	displayed within the view of the disk group.
  The following	list describes the icons and their characteristics.

  Physical Disk
      Physical disks appear as cylindrical icons labeled PD. These icons
      represent	physical disks known to	dxlsm. Physical	disk icons appear in
      the View of Disks	window.

  Partition
      Partitions appear	as rectangular icons within physical disk icons.  The
      partition	icon is	labeled	with the device	name. If a disk	has been
      added to a disk group, the corresponding partition icon is shaded. Par-
      tition icons appear in the View of Disks window.

  LSM Disk
      LSM disks	appear as cylindrical icons labeled D usually contain sub-
      disks, which are represented as rectangles. LSM disk icons represent
      disks that are both under	LSM control and	assigned to a disk group.
      LSM disk icons are labeled with the disk name, by	default. LSM disk
      icons typically appear in	a disk group view.

  Subdisk
      Subdisks appear within LSM disks (and often within plexes) as rectangu-
      lar shaped icons.	Subdisk	icons typically	appear in disk group views or
      in the View of Volumes window. Log subdisks (used	to log recent disk
      activity)	have icons with	double borders to distinguish them from	regu-
      lar subdisk icons.

  Plex
      Plexes appear either alone or within volumes as relatively large rec-
      tangles containing subdisks. Plex	icons have a heavy border to distin-
      guish them from partition	or subdisk icons. Plex icons typically appear
      in disk group views or in	the View of Volumes window.

  Volume
      Volumes appear as	cylindrical icons labeled V.  These icons often	con-
      tain plex	and subdisk icons. Volume icons	are distinguished from disk
      icons by a heavy border. Volume icons typically appear in	disk group
      views or in the View of Volumes window.

  Greyed out
      With some	operations, icons are updated almost instantly to reflect the
      results of the operation just performed. During other operations,	it
      may take awhile for a particular icon to update itself. While being
      updated, icons are prevented from	accepting input	or undergoing confi-
      guration changes.	 Since an icon that is busy being updated should not
      be selected or manipulated, dxlsm	greys out the text in that icon	so
      that the user is aware that it is	temporarily inaccessible. No input is
      accepted by an icon while	it is greyed out. As soon as the icon is
      fully updated, it	returns	to its normal visual state and accepts input
      again. Icons that	are temporarily	greyed out in this manner are also
      referred to as blocked icons.

  There	are two	ways to	manipulate icons, as described here:

  Select-operate
      The user first selects an	icon by	positioning the	pointer	on it and
      then clicking MB1	(when selecting	a single icon) or MB2 (when selecting
      multiple icons) button. The mouse	or keyboard can	then be	used to
      choose an	operation (typically from a menu) to be	applied	to the
      selected icons.

  Drag and drop
      The user drags an	icon and then drops it elsewhere. An icon is dragged
      by holding down MB1 and then moving the mouse, which moves an outline
      of that icon. The	icon can then be positioned in a different location
      or on top	of another icon	and dropped there by releasing MB1. The
      resulting	operation depends on the icon type and drop location.

  Depending on the type	of monitor you are using, the Visual Administrator
  employs color	or bitmap patterns to indicate the following:

    +  State of	an icon

    +  Activity	level of an icon

    +  Relationships between icons

    +  Failure of an operation

  It is	possible for a single icon to be in multiple states represented	by
  different colors or patterns at once.	For example, a given icon may be both
  selected and under projection	at the same time. In such cases, the reflects
  the color or pattern that represents the highest priority. The following is
  the priority list for	possible icon states, starting with the	highest
  priority:

   1.  Blocked

   2.  Error

   3.  Selected

   4.  Projected

   5.  Analyzed

   6.  Enabled

  An icon that is in the blocked state (highest	priority) is one that is
  currently busy and cannot allow any mouse or keyboard	input. The text
  within a blocked icon	is greyed out to indicate that it is inaccessible.

  If a color monitor is	used, the default colors are red, yellow, grey and
  green. If a monochrome monitor is used, bitmap patterns of varying textures
  and shades are used instead of colors. By default, standard X	Window System
  bitmaps (typically located in	either /usr/include/X11/bitmaps	or are used
  to create these patterns.

  The following	table describes	the values for the default colors and bitmap
  patterns associated with icons under different conditions. See the X
  DEFAULTS section of this reference page for information about	changing the
  default colors and patterns.

  Windows and Views


  Once you start the Visual Administrator, any of the view windows can be
  accessed via the root	window.	Views are special windows that display icons
  representing all LSM objects or a subset of objects currently	known to LSM.

  When the Visual Administrator	comes up, it displays the main Visual
  Administrator	window (also known as the root window).	The root window	con-
  tains	a menu bar and a set of	buttons. The set of buttons varies slightly
  depending on whether you have	RAID (Redundant	Arrays of Independent Disks)
  subsystems installed on your system. The menu	bar contains the following
  pull-down menu items:

  File
      Closes the current window	or exits the Visual Administrator interface
      completely

  Views
      Creates and manipulates user views

  Options
      Sets user	preferences when using the Visual Administrator	GUI

  Help
      Accesses the help	facility

  From the Visual Administrator	root window, you can use the pull-down Views
  menu to get to the views windows.  With views, you can examine and manipu-
  late different parts of the physical and logical storage systems. You	can
  add or remove	icons from views only by using the LSM Visual Administrator.

  Each view window title includes the name of the machine on which the ses-
  sion is running.

  The Visual Administrator root	window provides	a view button area containing
  a button for every view on the system. Views are accessed by clicking	MB1
  on one of the	view buttons in	the views subwindow.

  The Visual Administrator allows for two types	of views: default views	and
  user-created views. Both types function identically, but certain restric-
  tions	are placed on default views. Default views cannot be removed or
  renamed by the user, as user-created views can.

  Click	on the mouse buttons to	access the default view	windows	described in
  the following	table.

  _________________________________________________________________

  A user-created view is a view	window that focuses on a particular part of a
  physical and a logical mass storage system, as defined by the	system
  administrator. The system administrator can create views consisting of a
  selected collection of icons.	For example, a user might create a special
  view to correspond to	a physical or logical grouping (such as	a view for
  the accounting department).  User-created views enable the user to isolate
  part of the mass storage subsystem to	observe	or monitor that	part of	the
  configuration.

  User-created views differ from default views in that they contain copies of
  icons	from default views. Operations performed on these icon copies are
  reflected in the default views that display the affected icons.  However,
  icons	that appear in user-created views are not always updated whenever
  those	icons are altered in the corresponding default view.

  User-created views can be created using the Views pull-down menu from	the
  Visual Administrator root window.  Once created, icons can be	added to a
  new view window by copying them over from existing views via the Icon	menu.

  The rootdg Window


  By default, the View of rootdg window, which contains	objects	belonging to
  the rootdg disk group, appears immediately after the Visual Administrator
  window displays.

  You should perform operations	in the View of rootdg window or	in another
  disk group view whenever possible.

  The View of rootdg window has	a menu bar containing the following menu
  items:

  File
      Closes the current window	or exits the Visual Administrator completely

  Basic-Ops
      Accesses basic volume, file system, and disk operations

  Advanced-Ops
      Accesses advanced	operations involving volumes, disks, and other LSM
      objects

  Analyze
      Analyzes and displays the	activity level of objects

  Projection
      Illustrates the relationships between certain objects

  Options
      Sets user	preferences for	using the GUI. Also displays the Command Info
      window

  Icon
      Manipulates icons

  Help
      Accesses the help	facility

  Disk Operations


  This section lists the disk operations you can perform using the Visual
  Administrator.

  Disk groups are represented visually as disk group views rather than icons.
  To view the objects in a particular disk group, click	MB1 on the appropri-
  ate disk group button	in the Visual Administrator window. A View of Disks
  window appears. Physical disk	icons containing partition icons are
  displayed in this window. Disks under	LSM control contain partition icons
  that are colored or patterned. Note that the View of rootdg window is	the
  view of the disks that belong	to the rootdg disk group.

  To display information about for a particular	LSM disk, in the View of
  rootdg or appropriate	disk group view, click MB3 on the disk icon whose
  properties you want to view. The disk's properties form appears, displaying
  detailed information about the disk.	For example, the properties form
  includes a field that	shows the maximum free space available on that disk.

  It is	possible to alter certain characteristics of the disk by editing the
  appropriate properties form field and	then clicking MB1 on Apply. For	exam-
  ple, you can use the properties form to change the name of a disk.

  For the following operations,	in the appropriate view	window,	begin by
  selecting Disk Group from the	Advanced-Ops menu.

    +  Add a disk to a disk group

    +  Deport a	disk group

    +  Import a	disk group

       Note that you can be in any view	window to import a disk	group.

    +  Remove a	disk from a disk group

       After you remove	a disk from a disk group, select the Disk menu from
       the Advanced-Ops	menu and select	Remove Disk.

  See the manual Logical Storage Manager for more information on disk opera-
  tions.









  Volume Operations


  The volume operations	are performed from the View of rootdg window for the
  rootdg disk group or from the	appropriate disk group view for	other disk
  groups.

  To display information about a volume, in the	View of	rootdg or appropriate
  disk group view, click MB3 on	the volume icon	whose properties you want to
  view.	The volume's properties	form appears, displaying detailed information
  about	the volume.  It	is possible to alter certain characteristics of	the
  volume (such as its name) by editing the appropriate properties form field
  and then clicking MB1	on Apply.

  To perform the following volume operations using the Visual Administrator,
  from the appropriate disk view, select Volume	Operations from	the Basic-Ops
  menu:

    +  Create a	simple volume

       If you want to specify the disk where the volume	will reside, click
       MB1 on the desired disk icon, before selecting Volume Operations	from
       the Basic-Ops menu. Otherwise, LSM will select the disk for you.

    +  Create a	striped	volume

    +  Mirror a	volume

    +  Resize a	volume,	either by extending or shrinking it

    +  Remove a	volume

  To back up a volume, follow these steps:

   1.  In View of rootdg or the	appropriate disk group view, select the
       volume you want to back up.

   2.  Select Basic-OPs	-> Volume Operations ->	Snapshot -> Snapstart.

   3.  For UFS volumes,	you may	want to	unmount	the file system	briefly, to
       ensure that the snapshot	data on	disk is	consistent and complete.

   4.  Select Basic-Ops	-> Volume Operations ->	Snapshot -> Snapshot.

   5.  In the Snapshot Form, either accept the default snapshot	name or	fill
       in a new	name, then click MB1 on	Apply to complete the backup
       snapshot.  Note that normal usage of the	original volume	can now
       resume.

   6.  Back up the snapshot volume to tape.

   7.  Remove the snapshot volume by first selecting it	and then selecting
       the following menu items:

       Basic-Ops -> Volume Operations -> Remove	Volumes	Recursively

  See the manual Logical Storage Manager for more information on volume
  operations.








  File System Operations


  The file system operations are performed from	the View of rootdg window for
  the rootdg disk group	or from	the appropriate	disk group view	for other
  disk groups.

  To perform the following file	system operations, from	the appropriate	disk
  view,	first select UFS Operations from the Basic-Ops menu:

    +  Create a	file system on a simple	or striped volume

    +  Make a file system

       This operation is different from	creating a file	system,	in that	in
       this operation, the volume on which you create the file system already
       exists.

    +  Mount a file system

    +  Umount a	file system

    +  Display a mounted file system

  To mirror a file system, select the following: Basic-Ops -> Volume Opera-
  tions	-> Add Mirror

  See the manual Logical Storage Manager for more information on file system
  operations.

  Analyze Menu


  The Analyze menu, available from the View of rootdg and other	disk group
  views, allows	you to display statistics about	the performance	of LSM
  objects. Note	that only volume and LSM disk icons can	be selected for
  analysis.

  To start analysis, select one	or more	LSM disk and volume icons and then
  select Start from the	Analyze	menu.  Select Parameters from the Analyze
  menu to specify user preferences for analysis. For example, you can specify
  the cutoff values for	coloring or patterning of the icons under analysis.

  When an icon is under	analysis, you can display the Analysis Statistics
  form for that	icon by	clicking the MB3 button	on the icon. Because the MB3
  button is normally used to access an icon's properties form, use the
  Shift-MB3 button to access the properties form of an icon undergoing
  analysis instead.

  See the manual Logical Storage Manager for more information on the Analyze
  menu.

  Projection


  Projection is	the technique that the Visual Administrator uses to show
  relationships	between	icons that represent LSM objects. Projection is
  illustrated using color (deep	pink is	the default) or	bitmap patterns. Pro-
  jection highlights those objects that	the selected object is composed	of
  and illustrates the relationship between the objects.	For example, if	a
  volume is selected for projection, the corresponding subdisks	are
  highlighted within the volume	icon and also on the appropriate disk icons.
  If the selected icon has no associated objects, the Visual Administrator
  issues a warning to this effect.

  To show the projection of a particular icon, click the MB2 button on the
  icon while holding down the Shift key	(Shift-MB2). To	stop projection,
  press	Shift-MB2 again. You can also start and	stop projection	by selecting
  an icon and then using the Icon Projection submenu of	the Projection menu.


  Volume, plex,	subdisk, and LSM disk icons can	be selected for	projection.
  Projection does not apply to physical	disk or	partition icons.

  Projection may be requested in any view. When	an icon	is highlighted by
  projection, all icons	representing that object in all	view windows where it
  appears are highlighted.

  See the manual Logical Storage Manager for more information on projection.

RESTRICTIONS

  The Disk Operations menu under the Basic Ops menu is not currently sup-
  ported. For disk operations, use the disk menus under	the Advanced Ops
  menu.

X DEFAULTS

  This section lists X resources that can be used to configure the Visual
  Administrator	according to personal preferences and system requirements.

  The Visual Administrator resources and associated preferences	can be speci-
  fied in your .Xdefaults file.	A file with default dxlsm entries is located
  in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/DXlsm.  The entries in this file	are commented
  out. You can uncomment the lines that	you want to enable. Refer also to
  your X window	system documentation on	X resources for	further	information.

  The default values specified here correspond to those	defaults compiled
  into the Visual Administrator. Preferences specified in the system's app-
  defaults file	may change these defaults.

  The entries in the .Xdefaults	file should take the following form:

       DXlsm*resource:	  value

  For example, the color used to represent a disabled icon can be altered
  from the default color (light	grey) to orange	by editing the .Xdefaults
  file to include the following	line:

       DXlsm*disabledPixel:   orange

  The dxlsm-related resources can also be specified for	a single session only
  by invoking the Visual Administrator using the following syntax:

       dxlsm -xrm dxlsm*resource:   value

  The default values can be changed according to user preferences. The
  resources are	listed to the left with	their default values to	the right.
  Each resource-value pair is followed by a brief description.

  Color	Resources


  The following	resources apply	only when the Visual Administrator is run on
  a color monitor:

  selectedPixel	royal blue
      The color	of icons that have been	selected.

  disabledPixel	light grey
      The color	of icons that are disabled and cannot be used by Visual
      Administrator (for example, detached plexes).

  alarmPixel red
      The color	of icons that have been	selected when an error occurs (for
      example, incorrectly selected icons).

  freesdPixel light grey
      The color	of subdisk icons that are free (unassociated) when Show	Free
      Subdisks has been	turned on.

  projectPixel deep pink
      The color	of icons that are projecting (displaying object	relation-
      ships) when Icon Projection has been turned on for that icon or a
      related icon.

  lowPixel green
      The color	of icons that have a low usage level (as defined in the
      Analysis Properties Form)	when analysis has been turned on for that
      icon or a	related	icon.

  midPixel yellow
      The color	of icons that have a medium usage level	(as defined in the
      Analysis Properties Form)	when analysis has been turned on for that
      icon or a	related	icon.

  highPixel red
      The color	of icons that have a high usage	level (as defined in the
      Analysis Properties Form)	when analysis has been turned on for that
      icon or a	related	icon.

  mono False
      When True	is specified, the Visual Administrator is forced to operate
      in monochrome (black and white) mode, whether or not a color monitor is
      being used.

  Monochrome Resources


  The following	resources apply	only when the Visual Administrator is run on
  a monochrome monitor:

  selectedPixmap gray3
      The bitmap pattern for icons that	have been selected.

  disabledPixmap stripe4
      The bitmap pattern for icons that	are disabled and cannot	be used	by
      the Visual Administrator (detached plexes, for example).

  alarmPixmap gray1
      The bitmap pattern for icons that	have been selected when	an error
      occurs (incorrectly selected icons, for example).

  freesdPixmap root_weave
      The bitmap pattern for subdisk icons that	are free (unassociated)	when
      Show Free	Subdisks has been turned on.

  projectPixmap	root_weave
      The bitmap pattern for icons that	are projecting (displaying object
      relationships) when Icon Projection has been turned on for that icon or
      a	related	icon.

  lowPixmap cross_weave
      The bitmap pattern for icons that	have a low usage level (as defined in
      the Analysis Properties Form) when analysis has been turned on for that
      icon or a	related	icon.

  midPixmap root_weave
      The bitmap pattern for icons that	have a medium usage level (as defined
      in the Analysis Properties Form) when analysis has been turned on	for
      that icon	or a related icon.

  highPixmap wide_weave
      The bitmap pattern for icons that	have a high usage level	(as defined
      in the Analysis Properties Form) when analysis has been turned on	for
      that icon	or a related icon.

  Icon Resources


  The following	resources relate to icons:

  volumeMinimizeIcons False
      When True	is specified, volume icons will	be minimized when created, by
      default.

  plexMinimizeIcons False
      When True	is specified, plex icons will be minimized when	created, by
      default. This feature is useful to display structures within volumes,
      but to hide details about	the subdisk structure that makes up the	plex.

  diskMinimizeIcons False
      When True	is specified, disk icons will be minimized when	created, by
      default.

  phyDiskMinimizeIcons False
      When True	is specified, physical disk icons will be minimized when
      created, by default.

  autoDeselect True
      When True	is specified, icons selected for an operation are automati-
      cally deselected when the	operation completes.  If set to	False, icons
      are remain selected until	the user decides to deselect them, making it
      possible to perform multiple operations on the same set of selected
      icons.

  Miscellaneous	Resources


  The following	are miscellaneous dxlsm-related	resources:

  foreground black
      The color	in which all foreground	items are displayed. This typically
      applies to icon outlines and text.

  background white
      The color	that serves as the background for all windows in the Visual
      Administrator.

  lsvaHelp False
      When True	is specified to	IsvalHelp, the Visual Administrator displays
      a	help message (including	command	line option usage information) in a
      window at	program	start up.

  title
      This is the title	of the application's root window.

  fontList fixed
      This describes the font to be used for all text within the Visual
      Administrator.

  commandSilos 50
      Use this to specify the number of	command	silos supported.  A command
      silo is a	set of sequentially dependent commands (like file system
      create, followed by file system mount).  A larger	number of silos	sup-
      ports a larger number of concurrent operations that can be run, but
      also requires the	Visual Administrator to	use more memory.

  commandHistorySize 20
      Use commandHistorySize to	specify	the number of commands that the
      Visual Administrator should remember and display in the history portion
      of the Command Info Window.

  defaultViewWindow rootdg
      Use defaultViewWindow to specify the name	of the disk group to be
      popped up	by default when	the Visual Administrator is run.

  chkMntptInterval 5
      Use chkMntptInterval to specify how often, in seconds, the Visual
      Administrator should check the system mount table	to accurately display
      information about	mounted	file systems.

  twoButtonMouse False
      When True	is specified to	twoButtonMouse,	the Visual Administrator
      remaps the mouse buttons for a two button	mouse.

  Window Adjustments


  On small displays (such as those with	a graphical resolution of 640x480),
  some windows or forms	may be too long	to fit entirely	on the screen and the
  bottom area of these windows/forms may not be	visible. If this is the	case,
  the window manager's move function (ALT-F7, by default) can be used to move
  the window or	form so	that all areas and form	buttons	are visible.

  Another technique that may allow forms to fit	better on a small screen is
  to start up dxlsm as follows:

       # dxlsm -xrm dxlsm*propertiesForm*marginHeight: 1

  This resource	specification causes forms to appear shorter than normal.  To
  achieve similar results, you can add the following lines to your
  $HOME/.Xdefaults file:

       dxlsm*propertiesForm*marginHeight: 1
       dxlsm*propertiesForm*marginWidth: 1
