Information technology – Storage management – Part 8: Media libraries
|Publication Date:||1 November 2014|
|ICS Code (Interface and interconnection equipment):||35.200|
This part of ISO/IEC 24775 models various details of the following objects of the media library for monitoring.
- Changer Devices
- IO Slots
- SCSI Interfaces and SCSI and FC Target Ports
- Physical Tapes
- Physical Package
In general, a CIM client can monitor the health and status of the above objects as well as get alert, status change and lifecycle CIM indications. In addition, a client can control the movement of media in a library using this standard.
The future versions of this standard shall address partitioned tape libraries and virtual tape libraries. Note that the experimental subprofile modelling partitioned tape libraries and virtual tape libraries in the previous version of this standard has been withdrawn and hence is now omitted from this standard.
