PSL library for Tivoli Storage Manager KM for PATROL

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are experiencing a long initial job collection cycle after a PATROL Agent restart.

What does it fix?

This patch improves the performance of the initial job collection cycle. A new method was added to enable users to run a PSL command to reduce the duration of the initial job query.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to the %PATROL_HOME%\lib\psl or $PATROL_HOME/lib/psl directory on the managed server:
    • TSM_backup_lib.lib
  2. Restart the PATROL Agent for the patch to take effect. Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
  3. Execute the following PSL command through the Console System Output Window (SOW):
    %PSL pconfig("REPLACE", "/TSM/TSM_JOB/InitQuery", 3600);

Note: This PSL Command reduces the initial Job query to one hour (3600 seconds). This duration can be modified to suit your requirements. If you do not run the above PSL command, the configuration set through the KM menu Configuration > Jobs will be used for initial and consecutive job collection cycles.
