Storage Checkpoint administrative operations require the
fsckptadm(1M) manual page.
You can use the
fsckptadm utility to create and remove Storage Checkpoints, change attributes, and ascertain statistical data. Every Storage Checkpoint has an associated name, which allows you to manage Storage Checkpoints; this name is limited to 127 characters and cannot contain a colon (
Storage Checkpoints require some space for metadata on the volume or set of volumes specified by the file system allocation policy or Storage Checkpoint allocation policy. The
fsckptadm utility displays an error if the volume or set of volumes does not have enough free space to contain the metadata. You can roughly approximate the amount of space required by the metadata using a method that depends on the disk layout version of the file system.
For disk layout Version 4, multiply the number of inodes (# of inodes) by the inode size (inosize) in bytes, and add 1 or 2 megabytes to get the approximate amount of space required. You can determine the number of inodes with the
fsckptadm utility, and the inode size with the
fsckptadm -v info '' /mnt0
ctime = Thu 3 Mar 2005 7:00:17 PM PST
mtime = Thu 3 Mar 2005 7:00:17 PM PST
flags = largefiles, mounted
# of inodes = 23872
# of blocks = 27867
# of overlay bmaps = 0
mkfs -t vxfs -o \
In this example, the approximate amount of space required by the metadata is 7 or 8 megabytes (23,872 x 256 bytes, plus 1 or 2 megabytes).
For disk layout Version 6 or 7, multiply the number of inodes by 1 byte, and add 1 or 2 megabytes to get the approximate amount of space required. You can determine the number of inodes with the
fsckptadm utility as above. Using the output from the example for disk layout Version 4 , the approximate amount of space required by the metadata is just over one or two megabytes (23,872 x 1 byte, plus 1 or 2 megabytes).
