Hi , Is there any way to monitor the Teamcenter Volume Size in OOTB?

Basic need is when any Volume is greater than particular size, the new operations to be routed to new volume without any intervention /pool manager restart in 4 tier framework

 

Thanks

I think they call that an Administrator? The reassignment and restart is *completely*dependent*on*your configuration*. For instance, if you have store and forward or if you assign a default volume to users instead of groups. You will certainly need to restart if you're adding a new volume and not just doing the Deny/Grant operation to create a new group folder.

Have you reviewed the move_volume_files utility yet?

Hi RandyEllsworth ,

Thanks for your reply. yes we have checked the move_volume_files. We dont want to move the files from one volume to another volume, We need to route the User Operations like dataset upload to new volume instead of old volume

I got from your reply that we need to restart the TC Server for such operations

Adding a new volume will require modification of the FMS Master and a restart of the whole FMS system. Further changes required are dependent on your configuration. While an ootb configuration won't require a restart of the server manager, some configurations do, so it is safer to recommend a restart (not knowing your exact configuration).

Hi Randy,

 

We are not adding new volume...Assuming the volume already exists and configured we are only assigning this Volume to the User from make_user utility.

 

We need to do a automation to check if Previous volume size is greater than max%, then assign the already configured volume to the User.

I don't understand your use-case. A Volume shouldn't be assigned to a User. A Volume should be assigned to a Group (Default Volume) and the Group assigned to a User (Default Group). A Default Local Volume can be assigned to a User when configuring Store and Forward.
There is a fringe use-case where Volumes are distributed and a User is assigned to their Volume however this is best done by creating a Group instead. The case requires that data is rarely shared between locations.

Hi Randy,

 

Sorry for Confusion.

Following is our usecase.

 

We are migrating huge amount of data(~5TB) from external System to Teamcenter.

We are using  batch scripts to perform the migration.

We have 5 Volumes defined in the organization already (MigVol1,migvol2,migvol3, migvol4, migvol5) each of 1 TB Size

Start of the Migration, the Migration group is initially assigned to one of the Volume ( Say Migvol1) 

 

Now our requirement is during migration runs if assigned Volume gets full, it should automatically switch to next Volume and so on without any interruption and intervention.

 

Is this acheivable? or do we need to switch off migration and manually assign new Volume and again restart  the migration?

 

 

Thanks

Here is something that you can try.

Teamcenter supports volume migration using migration policies. One of the way to do this is to define the high and low watermark.Please look for "Define a VM policy by watermark levels" in the help documentation for details.

You can try to setup multiple policies. For example MigVol1 -- MigVol2, MigVol2 -- MigVol3 etc. When the high water mark is reached migration starts and when the low water mark is reached, the migration stops. Migration happens from source to target volumes. Please note you cannot choose which files will be migrated.

Please give it a try and let me know if it worked.

Please check out the Volume Management documentation. There are ways to monitor the volumes.

HI Projyal,

 

Thanks for the reply. 

The Migration Policiies will be used to migrate data from one volume to another Volume.

 

We dont want to  migrate data from Volume to another Volume as it causes additional load on the system

We are only planning to switch the assignmnent of Group to new Volume
