SFHA Solutions 6.0: Use Cases for the VCS Intelligent Monitoring Framework (IMF)

Level 3
Employee Accredited

Intelligent Monitoring Framework (IMF) is an extension to the Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) agent framework. IMF allows the VCS agents to register the resources to be monitored with the IMF notification module so as to receive immediate notification of resource state changes without having to periodically poll the resources.

IMF provides the following benefits over poll-based monitoring:

  • Faster notification of resource state changes.
  • Reduction in VCS system utilization.
  • Ability to effectively monitor a large number of resources.
