NFT Reference Manual


SETCOS (Change Storage Class of Service)

SYNTAX:

setcos nnn

ROLE:
Sets your class of service (COS) for files subsequently transferred to storage to nnn. See the SETCOS discussion in LC's HPSS Reference Manual for allowed values of nnn.

You can check the current COS setting for your NFT session with STATUS. STATUS dutifully reports any integer nnn that you supply with SETCOS, even if not allowed by HPSS. And when STATUS reports a COS of 0 (zero), HPSS automatically sets each stored file's COS based on its size according to the default behavior.

You can discover the COS with which already stored files have been stored by using NFT's DIR command with the -h option (COS then appears in the third column in DIR's report). See also the detailed class of service discussion in LC's HPSS Reference Manual.

EXAMPLE:
STATUS here reveals the change (from the default situation) after you use SETCOS.

R/Us:  nft> status
Rtne:  Connected to storage as jfk.
        . . .
        Cos:     0
R/Us:  nft> setcos 120
R/Us:  nft> status
Rtne:  Connected to storage as jfk.
        . . .
        Cos:     120
