What does 'Confidence Level' mean in VERITAS Cluster Server (VCS) ?
The VCS Agent Developer's Guide states:
The confidence level is informative only; it is not used by VCS. It is returned only when the resource status is online.
A C++ entry point can return a confidence level of 0-100. A script entry point combines the status and the confidence level in a single number.
100 indicates offline. 101 indicates online and confidence level 10. 102 indicates online and confidence level 20. 103-109 indicates online and confidence levels 30-90. 110 indicates online and confidence level 100.
What is 'Confidence Level' ?
This feature was originally implemented into the Agent Application Program Interface (API) as a supplementary return value from monitor entry points. C++ monitor entry points return a VCSAgResState primitive, either VCSAgResOnline or VCSAgResOffline and conf_level. For script based Agents, the confidence level and state were merged into the "exit" value of the script giving the single numbers defined above.
