DiskGroup agent

The DiskGroup agent brings online, takes offline, and monitors Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) disk groups. This agent uses VxVM commands. You can use this agent to monitor or make disk groups highly available.

When the value of the StartVolumes and StopVolumes attribute is 1, the DiskGroup agent brings the volumes online and takes them offline during the import and deport operations of the disk group.

When you use a volume set, set StartVolumes and StopVolumes attributes of the DiskGroup resource that contains the volume set to 1. If a file system is created on the volume set, use a Mount resource to mount the volume set.

The agent protects data integrity by disabling failover when data is written to a volume in the disk group.
