A resource can be either a hardware or software entity, categorized by resource type. LifeKeeper supplies file system and SCSI resource types, and the recovery kits provide communications, RDBMS and other application resource types.
For example, a hierarchy for a protected file system includes instances for resources of the following types:
- filesys. Linux file system resource objects identified by their mount point.
- device. SCSI disk partitions and virtual disks, identified by their device file names, for example sdc1.
- disk. SCSI disks or RAID system logical units, identified by SCSI device name, for example sd.
