Title
(EN) CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT METHOD FOR STORAGE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE GESTION DE CONFIGURATION ET PROCÉDÉ DE GESTION DE CONFIGURATION POUR UN SYSTÈME DE MÉMORISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A configuration management system for a storage system including a host computer, a storage device providing a storage area for data processed by the host computer, and a communication network connecting the host computer and the storage device communicatively is disclosed. The configuration management system comprises a system condition table storing a system condition, a storage configuration table storing storage configuration information, a performance table storing a performance condition indicating a storage performance. Searching the system condition table is searched using the required system condition and the performance table is searched using the required performance condition. If the storage system satisfying the required conditions fails to be extracted, content of the required system condition is changed and searching of the system condition table and the performance table is carried out.

L'invention concerne un système de gestion de configuration pour un système de mémorisation comprenant un ordinateur hôte, un dispositif de mémorisation fournissant une zone de mémorisation pour des données traitées par l'ordinateur hôte, et un réseau de communication connectant l'ordinateur hôte et le dispositif de mémorisation de manière communicante. Le système de gestion de configuration comprend une table de condition de système mémorisant une condition de système, une table de configuration de mémorisation mémorisant des informations de configuration de mémorisation, une table de performance mémorisant une condition de performance indiquant une performance de mémorisation. Une recherche dans la table de condition de système est effectuée en utilisant la condition de système requise et une recherche dans la table de performance est effectuée en utilisant la condition de performance requise. Si le système de mémorisation satisfaisant aux conditions requises ne peut pas être extrait, le contenu de la condition de système requise est modifié et une recherche dans la table de condition de système et dans la table de performance est effectuée.
