    Changing $TMPDIR

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Description:
    From the "How to run index jobs 2009 nov 02" document -
    To move $TMPDIR: Create a new file and then change the $TMPDIR entry in ../alephe/aleph_start. Example: Define a /aleph15/tmp and then change:

    # setenv TMPDIR ${ALEPH_MOUNT}/a5${VERSION_NUMBER}_5/tmp
    setenv TMPDIR /aleph15/tmp

    Note: After changing aleph_start, you need to exit and re-log-on in order for the change to take effect. In addition, if you are submitting the indexing job through the GUI Cataloging Services, you will need to restart the www_servers (util w/3/2) and the batch_que. Running aleph_shutdown and aleph_startup will, of course, do all of these things

    What exactly do I need to do for the change of the TMPDIR to take place? Do I just need to restart the www_servers and batch que? I'd like to avoid restarting if possible.

    Resolution:
    I will change this section to say the following:

    To move $TMPDIR: Create a new directory and then change the $TMPDIR entry in ../alephe/aleph_start. Example: Define a /aleph15/tmp/ directory and then change:

    # setenv TMPDIR ${ALEPH_MOUNT}/a${ALEPH_VERSION}_$ALEPH_COPY/tmp

    setenv TMPDIR /aleph20/tmp

    Note: After changing aleph_start, since TMPDIR is used by various servers, daemons, and batch jobs, you need to run aleph_shutdown and aleph_startup to make the change take effect.
