NetBackup ACS SSI event logger (acssel)
The NetBackup ACS storage server interface (SSI) event logger acssel is modeled after the Sun StorageTek mini_el event logger. Therefore, its functional model differs from other NetBackup robotic controls.
The NetBackup acsd daemon starts acssel automatically. You also can start it manually. Event messages are logged to the following file:
Veritas recommends that acssel run continuously because it tries to connect on the event logger's socket for its message logging. If acsssi cannot connect to acssel, NetBackup cannot process requests immediately. Therefore, retry and error recovery situations can occur.
On UNIX systems, only the kill command stops acssel. The NetBackup bp.kill_all utility (UNIX ) stops the acssel process. On Windows systems, the bpdown.exe program stops the acssel process.
The full path to the event logger is /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/acssel. The usage format is as follows:
acssel [-d] -s socket_name
The following describes the options:
-d displays debug messages (by default, debug messages are disabled).
socket_name is the socket name (or IP port) to listen on for messages.
