Thank you, Gris.
The doucument  of LibstorageMgmt is very clear and I understand.
As a library, it can't be used freely but limitted by plug-ins. I'm not sure about that, so I asked.
Thanks again.

hello everyone,
I have a confusion about libstoragemgmt. It seems now we can't control
a storage without a specail plug-in.
Hi MaShimiao,

Libstoragemgmt is using URI[1] to determine which plug-in it should
use to control the storage.


If you have storage array not supported by any of our URI, please
neither provide develop notes or a patch.

Just like I can't test libstoragemgmt whit my own disk, am I right?
You can try 'sim://' URI to test libstoragemgmt if you don't have a
storage array supported or configured.
And I have read all descriptions of libstoragemgmt I can find. It
seems if I develop with libstoragemgmt library, I just can develop a
very upstairs application. Without plug-ins, the application can do
nothing. Am I right?
Upstairs application should not take care the hardware details. It just
pass URI to libstoragemgmt and call the API of it.
There is also a CLI tool called 'lsmcli' in libstoragemgmt if you just
want to try it.
I just want to cofirm all of them.
Thanks a lot.

Meanwhile, if there is any chance for us to improve the document, please
kindly let us know.
