[Bacula-devel] Feature request: Maximum Volume Bytes in Storage resource


I'd like to submit the following feature request; it is not a crucial one, but 
it should at least be considered before removing the deprecated "Maximum 
Volume Size" statement in the storage daemon.

Item n:   Add MaxVolumeSize/MaxVolumeBytes statement to Storage resource
  Origin: Bastian Friedrich <bastian.friedrich@xxxxxxxxxx>
  Date:   2008-07-09
  Status: -

  What:   SD has a "Maximum Volume Size" statement, which is deprecated and
          superseded by the Pool resource statement "Maximum Volume Bytes". It
          would be good if either statement could be used in Storage

  Why:    Pools do not have to be restricted to a single storage type/device;
          thus, it may be impossible to define Maximum Volume Bytes in the
          Pool resource. The old MaxVolSize statement is deprecated, as it is
          SD side only.
          I am using the same pool for different devices.

  Notes:  State of idea currently unknown. Storage resources in the dir config
          currently translate to very slim catalog entries; these entries
          would require extensions to implement what is described here.
          Quite possibly, numerous other statements that are currently
          available in Pool resources could be used in Storage resources too
          quite well.

Thx a lot
