Jump to: navigation, search

The Disk Pool Manager (DPM) is a lightweight solution for disk storage management. If offers the required SRM interfaces, although it is currently transitioning away from this to a more "modern" model.

It has been developed at CERN. Information on DPM and an installation guide can be found here and, more officially on the DPM trac page.


The only officially supported method for automatically configuring DPM uses Puppet. There are also some manual configuration instructions available. If this is your first time with DPM then the DPM Glossary may be of help. Older guides that previously appeared in this section can now be found at the bottom of this page.
