What is the DP Glue plugin?

[ Edited ]

Noticed a new plugin in the SC Community Toolchest.

 

It is called DP Glue 1.0 .

 

Did some research. Did some thinking too.

 

When you download the package, there is a large readme file.  

 

It would appear this product permits SnapProtect to call SnapCreator using the "sc_glue.exe" executable. It seems SnapProtect can ask DP Glue to quiesce and unquiesce the apps that SC supports like PostgreSQL -- which SnapProtect has no agent for.

 

The readme argues that the DP Glue makes error codes coming from SC easier for SP admins to comprehend.

 

What I do not like is that this is still listed as BETA code. And that SnapProtect can only have SC quiesce and unquiesce apps/dbs.  Then again, I guess this keeps SP in charge of the snapshot process.

 

I will keep watching this one.
