I have a potential customer interested in using HSM for Windows. They
have an application that manages the file data and want to manage
retrieves from the HSM. Specifically, they want to be able to determine
where in the TSM storage pool hierarchy the file exists so they can
determine the length of time required to do the retrieve. In addition,
they are interested in being able to "batch" retrieves and generate
information about how long the "batch" would take and then either do it
in real-time or push it off to some other time and let the end user know
what's going on.
Does anybody know if there is an API to the HSM client and if so, is it
documented? And if not, will the dsmfileinfo and dsmfind programs yield
some of this information in a programmable way?
Any help, as always, is appreciated!
