Aliases: 

 

Command Format: 

sta[ge] -A] [-i] [-m max] [-N] [-R] [-w] [path ...] [<<MARKER]

Options: 

-A: (default) enable tape mount optimization (autoscheduling)

-i : no interactive notification when file(s) have been staged

-m : max number of stages to issue in a single batch. Default=no limit

-N : disable optimization of stage requests by VV and position

-R : recursively traverse directories in the specified path(s)

-w : wait for each stage to complete (foreground stage). Default is to stage
in the background. Setting -w internally disables -A and enables -N.

MARKER : provides sh-style "here"-document syntax for specifying filenames.
Lines following the MARKER, which must be the last token on the line, contain one or
more pathnames (which may include wildcards).
The list is terminated by a line containing MARKER as the first token on the line.

Usage Notes: 

  • If -w is specified, it overrides -A, and disables optimization based on
    tape and position. Instead, HSI issues a foreground stage for each
    file as it is encountered in the list, and waits for it to complete before
    continuing with the next file in the list.

Example: 

stage -w my_file
