Protection base policies : How are they implemented ? How are they created ?

Currently Being Moderated



I am loving more and more this product

However discovering and understanding its features may be a hard work.


OCUM provides several (18) builtin protection base policies.

Even if the names and graphs provide information of what each policy is supposed to do, they do not provide information on which DOT data protection mechanisms they used : SV, VSM, QSM, SyncMirror ...


It is possible to test each protection base policy and look its implementation on (v)filers.

However this is a time consuming work.

Moreover it does not guarantee that we really understood ... for instance we found several discussions about a way to enforce ocum to use exclusively QSM (this let suppose that ocum uses SV in some cases).


I've been searching in official documentation of Ocum and Operations manager without being able to find this information.


Our major concerns are about :

  • implementation of Backup : QSM or SV ? in which cases ?
  • implementation of DR : VSM or SyncMirror ? in which cases ?


Is there a document / discussion that provides this information ?


On another side, is it possible to extend the list of protection base policies; create new ones ?


Thanks a lot for you help.
