About Storage Expert

System administrators often find that gathering and interpreting data about large and complex configurations can be a difficult task. Veritas Storage Expert is designed to help in diagnosing configuration problems with VxVM.

Storage Expert consists of a set of simple commands that collect VxVM configuration data and compare it with "best practice." Storage Expert then produces a summary report that shows which objects do not meet these criteria and makes recommendations for VxVM configuration improvements.

These user-configurable tools help you as an administrator to verify and validate systems and non-optimal configurations in both small and large VxVM installations.
