The OpenVOS architecture makes use of several independent systems; the NIO for X25 communication, the fiber channel disk array controllers, UPS for power, the RSN Internet Console Server for RSN over IP and the maintenance network Ethernet switches that allow all these systems to communicate over a private Ethernet/IP network. These systems are monitored by [...]
The OpenVOS Operating System provides a high-level Application Programming Interface (API) that on the whole makes programming the system easy. But sometimes, it becomes too easy – because a simple subroutine call to an s$… routine might hide a lot of complexity. This is the first of an irregular series of posts to call your [...]
When system log messages (all of them: hardware, security, syserr, etc) are generated in OpenVOS, they are sent to the syserr partition, and an event is notified. A process named TheOverseer is waiting on that event, along with a lot of other events. In order to handle this event, TheOverseer then reads messages out of [...]
