VTL replication status for specific barcode

We're searching for a way to use the CLI to query the local DD2500 for the status of a specific barcode being replicated to the remote DD2500.  This would let us report back when the replication for that specific barcode was complete.  So far, I'm not seeing a CLI command that will provide this information.

Version is DDOS 5.6.0.5-501748

Thank you.

Re: VTL replication status for specific barcode

You can use the CLI command: "vtl tape show".

Example:

# vtl tape show all barcode T10007LA

Processing tapes....

Barcode    Pool      Location   State    Size           Used (%)   Comp   Modification Time

--------   -------   --------   -----   -----   ----------------   ----   -------------------

T10007LA   DDVTL01   vault      RW      1 GiB   0.0 GiB ( 0.00%)     0x   2013/02/28 14:26:35

--------   -------   --------   -----   -----   ----------------   ----   -------------------

VTL Tape Summary

----------------

Total number of tapes:     1

Total pools:               1

Total size of tapes:       1 GiB

Total space used by tapes: 0.0 GiB

Average Compression:       0.0x

And you need to compare the "Modification Time" on source and target.

If target time is higher than source, the tape is replicated.

Re: VTL replication status for specific barcode

Since the 2 VTLs are communicating, we were hoping for a single command that would show the barcode replication status.  The process you've outlined involves retrieving this information from both VTLs, parsing out the timestamps, then comparing them.  That's doable, but not quite a one-stop solution.
