Circa 2000. AFS Tool Suite is a set of scripts (mostly system administration), Python library functions and classes for dealing with an AFS cell and capturing data returned by commands in a programmatic way.

"AFS Tool Suite" (ATS) Jeff Blaine (c) Copyright 2000 The MITRE Corporation INTRO BUILDING Required Optional HISTORY CONTACT INTRO ===== This package contains a suite of scripts (mostly Python) for use in an AFS (Andrew File System) cell and a Python library of AFS-related classes and utility functions. All of ATS was developed under UNIX and it's likely that's all it will run under. AFS Tool Suite is: vrm - Given a mountpoint, remove the mountpoint and the volume mounted there (from disk). volsanity - Volume sanity checking. Multi-purpose, time consuming, and brute force: 1. Does a 'vos examine' on every entry in the VLDB and reports on volumes which could not be examined properly. This will find some problems with your VLDB if they exist. 2. Does a 'vos examine' on every volume found via 'vos listvol' on all server:/partition pairs and reports on volumes which could not be examined properly. This will find some problems with stray volumes sitting on disk if they exist. This should probably been run once per week _maximum_ or on a whim now and then. volspot - Query an "AFS space usage policy" database for information about where (server:/partition) certain types of volumes should exist. Also, if requested, report back on only the server and partition pairs which have N Kbytes free. And finally, if specified, run in CMU "Site" emulation mode and only spit out one of the valid sites with N Kbytes free (random pick for distributing volumes on a pool of server:/parts). repcheck - Configured with a set of regular expressions, which represent volume name patterns expected to be replicated, examines the contents of the VLDB to see if volumes actually are replicated. volspot_check - Query an "AFS space usage policy" database for information about where (server:/partition) certain types of volumes should exist and then check to make sure that no sites have volumes on them that should not be there. Report if volumes are found out of place. pts_checker - Simple script to find PTS users which are in your PTS database but not in you NIS passwd map, and PTS host entries which are in your PTS database but not in your NIS hosts map. quota_partinfo - Like 'vos partinfo <server> <partition>' but instead of reporting on K disk space free, it reports on K uncommitted quota-wise (REAL and proper free AFS space). Optionally caches results (see the top of the script) "libraries" - A set of Python classes and functions for working with user-level AFS commands and their output. BUILDING ======== Required -------- 1. Read the file LICENSE 2. If you don't already have a Python 1.5 (or higher) interpreter installed, get and compile Python (www.python.org) 3. Edit the top of the Makefile and set all variables up to the marker labeled 'END OF CONFIGURATION INFORMATION' 4. Run the command: make install Optional -------- 1. Copy docs/* to a web-server-accessible area for reference. 2. If you plan to use 'volspot' and/or 'volspot_check', you need to set up an 'AFS Space Usage Policy' database (an ASCII file) and also modify those 3 scripts to point to that database. Please see docs/SpacePolicyDB.html and then hand-edit 'volspot' and 'volspot_check' 3. If you plan to use lib/afs_stats.py's GIFReport class, you will need gnuplot installed HISTORY ======= The first version of AFS Tool Suite was written by Jeff Blaine at The MITRE Corporation. At that time it consisted of around 1800 lines of Python code. In December of 2000, The MITRE Corporation agreed to let Jeff release the software outside of MITRE under the GNU Public License. The MITRE Corporation retains the copyright to AFS Tool Suite.
