Hi Edward,

>> sh dev dsa /bit /full
This command gives details about the BITMAP used for volume shadowing operation.
In your case the bitmap seems to be a Minimerge bitmap.

Refer the following link for more details -

Hope this helps.

Re: what's that means in vms shadow?

Hi Edward,

Percent Populated
This indicates the exact percentage of the disk that has been copied or
merged. In your case, the bitmap is a minimerge and hence the percentage
should refer to the merge satus.

Re: what's that means in vms shadow?

Hi Edward,

Looks like Percent Populated corresponds to Master bitmap and Local set
corresponds to the Local bitmap. I am not sure and need to dig through some docs
to confirm this.

For information on Master/Locak bitmap, refer
http://www.openvms.compaq.com/openvms/journal/v11/hbmm_amcvp_openvms_shadowing.html
-> Local & Master bitmaps

Hi Edward,

Also,

Write bitmap -
A write bitmap is a data structure in memory that tracks the addresses of all
write operations and all data security erase (DSE) operations.

Master write bitmap -
A master write bitmap is created on the first OpenVMS Alpha system that
mounts the shadow set. It contains a record of all blocks that have been
changed on a shadow set

Local write bitmap -
A local write bitmap is a bitmap that is created when you mount or dismount a
minicopy-enabled shadow set. A local write bitmap communicates with the
master write bitmap to ensure that the master write bitmap has a record of
all changed blocks.

For more details, refer
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/731final/5423/5423pro_014.html

Hope this helps.

Is there a problem you are trying to solve, or is your question out of idle curiousity?
