I need to know the size of the Volume in veritas.
vxprint shows the following output.
v  v01          -            ENABLED  ACTIVE   7239680  SELECT    -        fsgen
pl v01-01       v01          ENABLED  ACTIVE   7239936  CONCAT    -        RW
sd array00p2v1-01 v01-01     array00p2v1 0     7239936  0         fabric_19 ENA

v  v02          -            ENABLED  ACTIVE   5074944  SELECT    -        fsgen
pl v02-01       v02          ENABLED  ACTIVE   5074944  CONCAT    -        RW
sd array00p2v1-02 v02-01     array00p2v1 7239936 5074944 0        fabric_19 ENA

I want to know the size of each volume in Kilobytes.
But, is the size mentioned here is in bytes or Kbytes or blocks??
Can anyone assist? I was not able to get useful info from the admin guide.
Please advice at the earliest.

for the first tape, the size is 7,239,680 bytes, which is 7 megabytes.

The other one is about 5 megabytes. To get the kilobytes, delete the last 3 digits.

The following information is from: http://docsrv.sco.com/cgi-bin/man/man?vxprint+1M

"The columns are (from left to right): Record type (pl); Record name; Associated volume, or - if the plex is dissociated; Plex kernel state; Plex utility state. If an exception condition is recognized on the plex (an I/O failure, a removed or inaccessible disk, or an unrecovered stale data condition), then that condition is listed instead of the value of the plex record's state field; Plex length in sectors; Plex layout type; Number of columns and plex stripe width, or - if the plex is not striped; Plex I/O mode, either RW (read-write), WO (write-only), or RO (read-only)

The record type is as follows:
dg - disk group
dm - disk media
v - volume
pl - plex
sd - subdisk"

So: to answer your question...

Volume v01 is 7239680 sectors, or 3,706,716,160 bytes or a little over 3.5GB
Volume v02 is 5074944 sectors, or 2,598,371,328 bytes, or a little over 2.5GB

My answer is researched and correct (see link for confirmation)  - I do not believe splitting points is appropriate here.
