For more information, you can see Technical Report TR 3640 for recommendations when setting up your FPolicy configuration.
Enabling or disabling the FPolicy feature
FPolicy is enabled by default when the CIFS protocol is licensed and configured. You can set the fpolicy.enable option to manually enable or disable the FPolicy feature.
Creating a file policy
To set up a file policy, you first need to create it. To create a file policy, you use the create command.
Enabling the file policy
After you create a file policy, it is necessary that you enable it before notification policies can be configured. To enable a file policy, you can use the enable command.
Disabling a file policy
When a file policy is disabled, the operations that are specified for that particular file policy will not be monitored. When a particular file policy is disabled, no file request notification is sent to the FPolicy server even if the FPolicy server is registered with the storage system.
Destroying a file policy
Destroying a file policy immediately removes an existing file policy from the connected storage system.
Setting server timeout
You can set the limit on how long the system waits for the FPolicy server to respond to a request. You can set this limit individually for each file policy. This option ensures that the FPolicy server is making progress.
Setting request screening timeout
You can set a limit on how long the system waits for the FPolicy server to screen a request. You can set this limit individually on each policy. This option improves the performance of the FPolicy server.
