Administering VCS Simulator

VCS Simulator enables you to view state transitions, experiment with configuration parameters, and predict how service groups will behave during cluster or system faults. Use this tool to create and save configurations in an offline state.

Through the Java Console, VCS Simulator enables you to configure a simulated cluster panel, bring a system in an unknown state into an online state, simulate power loss for running systems, simulate resource faults, and save the configuration while VCS is offline.

For global clusters, you can simulate the process of generating and clearing cluster faults.

You can run multiple simulated clusters on a system by using different port numbers for each cluster. The Java Console provides the same views and features that are available for online configurations
