SIOS Protection Suite provides two mechanisms for defining an application resource hierarchy:
- LifeKeeper GUI
- LifeKeeper Configuration Database Interface (LCDI) commands
The LCDI is a set of interface commands provided by SIOS Protection Suite that you can use to create and customize resource hierarchy configurations to meet your application needs. You use the command interface when an application depends upon multiple resources (such as two or more file systems).
For a description of the commands, see the LCDI manual pages. This topic provides a development scenario that demonstrates the way you can use both the GUI and command functions to create a resource hierarchy.
