There are two kinds of entries in the namespace: profile and server. Server entries contain information about the IP address of the host on which the pdserver is running and the TCP/IP port number on which the pdserver is listening for server requests from other pdservers. Queue and destination entries are profile entries. Profile entries refer to the server entry for the pdserver in which they reside.
The fstshow command can be used to display information about server, queue, and actual destination entries in the namespace. The syntax for the command is:
fstshow [ -s | -q | -p ] entry-nameWhere s represents server, q represents queue, and p represents destinations (formerly known as printers).
For example, if a pdserver named info2 is running in the IPM system,
fstshow -s info2 displays information like:
Type: Server Dir Type: DIR_ID_SPOOLER_ENTRY Name: info2 Listen Port: 2051 IP Addr: server.local Client Port: 6874The
Type:field identifies this as a server entry. The
Dir Typefield identifies this as an entry for a server (formerly known as a spooler). The
IP Addrfield lists info2's host machine's IP address. The
Listen Portfield lists info2's server port. The
Client Portfield lists info2's client port but is only provided for information and is not used dynamically by any part of InfoPrint Manager. You can also determine the client port for a particular pdserver by entering a
ps -ef | grep pdservercommand on the machine where the pdserver is running. The client port appears after the name of the pdserver.
Defaultmeans it is running on port 6874.
Running the same command for a queue or actual destination would display a profile entry which would look like:
Type: Profile Dir Type: DIR_ID_QUEUE_ENTRY Name: info2-q Server Path: servers/info2The
Type:field identifies this as a profile entry. The
Dir Type:field identifies this as a queue. The
Name:field identifies this as
info2-q. And the
Server Path:field identifies the server entry for the pdserver that contains this queue.
You must have read access to the namespace files to use the fstshow utility.
