It is indeed. It's more like a swiss-army knife for filesystems, and
we (at CEA) use it for a whole variety of purposes, from HSM
migrations to users scoring (we give each user a score based on the
profile of their files, and we tie quota exceptions to that score),
filesystem monitoring and blazing fast usage reports.

The documentation is pretty comprehensive, but if you have any
question, or any problem, don't hesitate to shoot an email to the
support mailing list.
