Use the command opclaygrp to maintain layout groups and node hierarchies.  This command can only be issued by the root user.

This tool enables users to add, delete, change or list layout groups or node hierarchies. It also enables moving layout groups between existing layout groups.

Operations

-add_lay_group | -add_node_hier |
-del_lay_group | -del_node_hier |
-chg_lay_group | -chg_node_hier |
-move_lay_groups | -list_node_hier |
-list_lay_group |
-list_lay_group_rec

Attributes

lay_group=<lay_group_name>// Layout Group Name
lay_group_name=<lay_group_name>// Layout Group Name
lay_group_label=<lay_group_label>// Layout Group Label
lay_group_desc=<lay_group_desc>// Layout Group Description
to_lay_group=<lay_group_name>// Layout Group Name
lay_group_list='<list>'// List of Layout Groups
node_hier=<hierarchy_name>// Node Hierarchy Name
node_hier_name=<hierarchy_name>// Node Hierarchy Name
node_hier_label=<hierarchy_label>// Node Hierarchy Label
node_hier_desc=<hierarchy_desc>// Node Hierarchy Description

Options:

[ -verbose | -v ]

  opclaygrp uses three types of parameter: operations, attributes and options. The operations are indicated by a '-' like -<operation>. Attributes are always specified through an assignment like <attrib>=<value>. Options are indicated same as operations.

Please note: Only one operation is allowed per call, opclaygrp cannot perform more than one operation per call. Options are optional.

Operations

-add_lay_group
Adds a new layout group to the node hierarchy. Mandatory attribute is: lay_group. Optional attributes are: node_hier (default is NodeBank), lay_group_desc and lay_group_label.
-del_lay_group
Deletes the specified lay_group. Mandatory attribute is: lay_group. Optional attribute is: node_hier (default is NodeBank).

-list_lay_group_rec
Recursively list all layout groups of specified layout group. Child layout groups are shift to left. No Mandatory attribute is required. Optional attributes are: lay_group and node_hier (default is NodeBank).
Please note:If lay_group is not used, all layout groups of node hierarchy will be displayed.

-del_node_hier
Deletes a node hierarchy. Mandatory attribute is: node_hier. No Optional attributes are required.
-list_node_hier
List all node hierarchies. No attributes are required.
-chg_node_hier
Changes the name, label or description of specified node hierarchy. Mandatory attribute is : node_hier. Optional attributes are: node_hier_name, node_hier_label and node_hier_desc.

Attributes

lay_group
Specifies the name of layout group. This is mandatory in all operations that handle layout group, except list_lay_group and list_lay_group.
lay_group_name
Specifies the new name of a layout group. This attribute is used only with chg_lay_group operation.
lay_group_desc
Specifies the description of a layout group. If description includes more than one word, double quotes should be used. This attribute is used only with add_lay_group or chg_lay_group operation.
lay_group_label
The label is the 'name' that appears in the layout groups's icon in the HPOM GUI. When no label is specified, the layout group name is shown applies. This attribute is used only with add_lay_group or chg_lay_group operation.
to_lay_group
Specifies the name of a layout group to which layout_group will be moved. This attribute is used only with move_lay_groups operation.
lay_group_list
Specifies the names of the layout groups which will be moved to to_lay_group. The layout group names must be separated by blanks and enclosed in ' ' or " ". This attribute is used only with move_lay_groups operation.
node_hier
Specifies the name of node hierarchy. This is mandatory in all operations that handle node hierarchies.
node_hier_name
Specifies the new name of node hierarchy. This attribute is used only with chg_node_hier operation.
node_hier_label
The label is the 'name' that appears in the node hierarchie's icon in the HPOM GUI. When no label is specified, the node hierarchy name is shown applies. This attribute is used only with add_node_hier or chg_node_hier operation.
node_hier_desc
Specifies the description of a node hierarchy. If description includes more than one word, double quotes should be used. This attribute is used only with add_node_hier or chg_node_hier operation.

Options

-verbose | -v
Display more verbose output. This applies to list_lay_group and list_lay_group_rec. If used name, label and description of layout group will be displayed.
-force | -f
Delete layout group or node hierarchy without any warning. This applies to del_lay_group and del_node_hier.
This command exits with value 0 after successful operation. In case of errors, other value is returned and descriptive text sent to standard error.

Add layout group Data_center (label=Center, description="Layout group for data center") to top level within node hierarchy Other.

	opclaygrp -add_lay_group lay_group=Data_center\ 
	lay_group_label=Center \
	lay_group_desc="Layout group for data center" \ 
	node_hier=Other

Delete layout group Data_center, which is located in layout group Operations, within default node hierarchy.

	opclaygrp -del_lay_group \ 
	lay_group=Operations/Data_center
	

Change name of layout group Data_center to Data. Layout group Data_center is located on top level, within node hierarchy Other.

opclaygrp -chg_lay_group lay_group=Data_center \ 
	lay_group_name=Data \ 
	node_hier=Other	

Recursively list all layout groups in layout group Data_center, which is located in layout group Operations, within node hierarchy Other.

opclaygrp -list_lay_group_rec \ 
	lay_group=Operations/Data_center \
	node_hier=Other
	

Move layout groups "test_grp1" and "test_grp2" (bouth are located on top level), into layout group Data_center, which is located in layout group Operations, within node hierarchy Other.

opclaygrp -move_lay_groups \ 
lay_group_list='test_grp1 test_grp2' \ to_lay_group=Operations/Data_center \
node_hier=Other
