The sam-robotsd daemon starts and monitors the execution of
the media changer library control daemons for SAM-QFS. The
sam-robotsd daemon is started automatically by the sam-amld
daemon if there are any libraries defined in the mcf file.
The sam-robotsd daemon starts and monitors the correct
daemon for all defined libraries. For more information on
the mcf file, see the mcf(4) man page.
Each library daemon is responsible for monitoring the
preview table for the VSNs that are controlled by that
daemon. If a request is found for one of its VSNs, the
daemon finds an available drive under its control and moves
the cartridge into that drive. When the device is ready,
the daemon notifies the SAM-QFS library daemon, and the
device is assigned to the waiting process.
The identifiers are as follows:
mshmid The identifier of the master shared memory segment
created by the sam-amld daemon.
pshmid The identifier of the preview shared memory
segment created by the sam-amld daemon.
equip The equipment number of the device.
The sam-genericd daemon controls libraries that conform to
the SCSI II standard for media changers, and it is the
daemon that controls the ADIC/Grau ABBA library through the
grauaci interface. For more information on this interface,
see the grauaci(7) man page.
The sam-stkd daemon controls StorageTek libraries through
the ACSAPI interface and is included in the SAM-QFS software
package. For more information on this interface, see the
stk(7) man page.
The sam-ibm3494d daemon controls IBM 3494 tape libraries
through the lmcpd interface and is included in the SAM-QFS
software package. For more information on this interface,
see the ibm3494(7) man page.
The sam-sonyd daemon controls Sony libraries through the
Sony DZC-800S PetaSite Application Interface Library and is
included in the SAM-QFS software package. For more
information on this interface, see the sony(7) man page.
