notification - a logical object definition in the xCAT database.


notification Attributes: comments, filename, tableops, tables


Logical objects of this type are stored in the xCAT database in one or more tables. Use the following commands to manipulate the objects: mkdef, chdef, lsdef, and rmdef. These commands will take care of knowing which tables the object attributes should be stored in. The attribute list below shows, in parentheses, what tables each attribute is stored in.

notification Attributes:

comments (notification.comments)

Any user-written notes.

filename (notification.filename)

The path name of a file that implements the callback routine when the monitored table changes. Can be a perl module or a command. See the regnotif man page for details.

tableops (notification.tableops)

Specifies the table operation to monitor for. Valid values: “d” (rows deleted), “a” (rows added), “u” (rows updated).

tables (notification.tables)

Comma-separated list of xCAT database tables to monitor.
