MMDF Path names
Since these vary from machine to machine, I'm gathering them all here.
MMDF uses the following key directories:
- Spool directory.
- This is where the message queues are stored. Unique to each
machine. On MIPS and Suns: /usr/spool/mmdf/lock/home.
- Log directory.
- Where all the logs get written. Unique to each machine. On MIPS
and Suns: /usr/spool/mmdf/log.
- Phase directory.
- Contains files that MMDF touches when various things happen. Not
of real importance and only really used by checkque.
Unique to each machine. /usr/spool/mmdf/log/phase
- bin directory.
- Contains programs that users may wish to use, like
rcvtrip. May be shared. On Suns:
/local/mmdf/bin; on MIPS, /usr/local/bin.
- lib directory.
- Contains binaries that only the sysadmin will want to use, like
dbmbuild. May be shared. On MIPS,
/usr/local/mmdf; on Suns, /local/mmdf/lib.
- channel directory.
- Contains binaries for the programs that run the various MMDF
channels. May be shared. On MIPS, /usr/local/mmdf/chans;
on Suns, /local/mmdf/chans.
- table directory.
- Contains all the table files referred to from the MMDF tailor
file. The contents of the files are built into MMDF's DBM database by
dbmbuild. Unique to each machine. On MIPS,
/usr/spool/mmdf/table; on Suns,
Up to toplevel, on to message routing.
