I just recently joined the 21st century when I discovered UFS
logging on Solaris 8. I'm always the last to find out about
neat stuff. :)
I wonder why logging isn't enabled by default? At the very
least, the OS install procedure ought to ask if you want it.
Anyway, I know that 2.6 doesn't support UFS logging directly
like 8 does, but on my 2.6 systems I do use DiskSuite 4.1,
which I understand can do UFS logging.
Here's the question - is the DiskSuite 4.1 package "SUNWmdn"
related in any way to the UFS logging? I ask because I don't
normally install this package - I only install "SUNWmd" and
"SUNWmdg". I'm trying to figure out if I
need it or not for the UFS logging. Its title is "Solstice
DiskSuite Log Daemon" which is why I am wondering but I've
also seen indications that it has something to do with SNMP .
Actually, I'd really appreciate a short explanation of just
what SUNWmdn really is, no matter what the answer to the
above question is. :)
Thanks for any help you can give me. Email cc's appreciated.
