dpm-addpool defines a new disk pool. This command requires ADMIN privilege.
pool_name specifies the disk pool name. It must be at most CA_MAXPOOLNAMELEN characters long. defsize specifies the default amount of space reserved for a file. This is by default in bytes, but the number may also be post-fixed with 'k', 'M' or 'G' for kilobyte, Megabyte and Gigabyte respectively. 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). 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. 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). pool_gids if not zero, the disk pool is restricted to this comma separated list of group gids. pool_groups if set and not "ALL", the disk pool is restricted to this comma separated list of group names. retention_policy specifies the retention policy supported by the disk pool. It can be R (for Replica), O (for Output) or C (for Custodial). Default is R. space_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). The latter is the default.
