Documentation

The VRTSspt package provides a group of tools for troubleshooting a system and collecting information on its configuration. The tools can gather Veritas File System and Veritas Volume Manager metadata information and establish various bench marks to measure file system and volume manager performance. The tools are not required for operation of any Veritas product, and they may adversely impact system performance if not used correctly. Veritas provides these tools to analyze systems if you suspect that there are performance problems. The tools should be used only under the direction of a Veritas Technical Support Engineer.
