Software developer's kit packages

Two packages comprise the SDK: VRTSfssdk and VRTSfsmnd. The VRTSfssdk package contains libraries, header files, and sample programs in source and binary formats that demonstrate usage of the VxFS API interfaces to develop and compile applications. The VRTSfsmnd package contains this Guide and the API man pages.

The directory structure in the VRTSfssdk package is as follows:


Contains several subdirectories with sample programs and GNU-based Makefile files on each topic of interest.


Contains symlinks to all the sample programs in the sources directory for easy access to binaries.


Contains the header files for API library and ioctl interfaces.


Contains the pre-compiled vxfsutil API interface stubs library.


Contains the source code for the vxfsutil API interface stubs library.

The VRTSfssdk and VRTSfsmnd packages can be obtained separately from the VxFS package. To run the applications or sample programs, a licensed VxFS target is required. In addition, the VxFS license of the required features should be installed on the target system.
