File systems

The main file systems used by InfoPrint Manager include:

  • /var/pddir/default_cell (PDNAMESP)
  • /var/pd (PDBASE)
  • /var/psf
  • /var/psf/segments

InfoPrint Manager requires adequate space to store its data in these file systems. Each pdserver automatically monitors these file systems as well as /var/spool/lpd, and /tmp. When InfoPrint Manager detects a disk space low condition on any of these file systems, it logs a message in the error log and sends a notification if requested. See the chapter entitled “Monitoring memory and space on your system” in the RICOH InfoPrint Manager for AIX: Procedures or RICOH InfoPrint Manager for Linux: Procedures for more information about the InfoPrint Manager file systems monitoring and notification.

To plan for your disk space, you need to understand what is stored in each of these file systems.
