NAME

       dpm_addpool - define a new disk pool

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include "dpm_api.h"

       int dpm_addpool (struct dpm_pool *dpm_pool)

DESCRIPTION

       dpm_addpool defines a new disk pool.

       dpm_pool
              contains the pool definition.

       struct dpm_pool {
            char      poolname[CA_MAXPOOLNAMELEN+1];
            u_signed64     defsize;
            int       gc_start_thresh;
            int       gc_stop_thresh;
            int       def_lifetime;
            int       defpintime;
            int       max_lifetime;
            int       maxpintime;
            char      fss_policy[CA_MAXPOLICYLEN+1];
            char      gc_policy[CA_MAXPOLICYLEN+1];
            char      mig_policy[CA_MAXPOLICYLEN+1];
            char      rs_policy[CA_MAXPOLICYLEN+1];
            int       nbgids;
            gid_t          *gids;
            char      ret_policy;
            char      s_type;
            u_signed64     capacity;
            u_signed64     free;
            int       nbelem;
       };

       poolname
              specifies the disk pool name.

       defsize
              specifies the default amount of space reserved for a file (in bytes).

       gc_start_thresh
              specifies the minimum free space in the pool.  If the percentage of free space goes
              below this value, the garbage collector is started. Default is 0.

       gc_stop_thresh
              specifies the percentage of  free  space  in  the  pool  above  which  the  garbage
              collector is stopped. Default is 0.

       def_lifetime
              specifies  the  default  time  a  space  or volatile file is kept in the system (in
              seconds).

       defpintime
              specifies the default time a file is kept on a given disk (in seconds).

       max_lifetime
              specifies the maximum time a space or volatile file  is  kept  in  the  system  (in
              seconds).

       maxpintime
              specifies the maximum time a file is kept on a given disk (in seconds).

       nbgids is the size of the array of group ids gids.

       gids   The disk pool is restricted to this set of gids unless the group gid is zero.

       ret_policy
              specifies  the  retention  policy  supported  by  the  disk  pool. It can be R (for
              Replica), O (for Output) or C (for Custodial).

       s_type indicates the type of space supported in the disk pool. It can be V (for Volatile),
              D (for Durable), P (for Permanent) or - (to accept any type).

       This function requires ADMIN privilege.

RETURN VALUE

       This  routine  returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In
       the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

       EACCES       The caller does not have ADMIN privilege.

       EFAULT       dpm_pool is a NULL pointer.

       EEXIST       This pool exists already.

       ENOMEM       Memory could not be allocated for storing the pool definition.

       EINVAL       The length of poolname exceeds CA_MAXPOOLNAMELEN or the number of gids is too
                    big.

       SENOSHOST    Host unknown.

       SEINTERNAL   Database error.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.
