NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       fitset - determines if a software subset fits on a system

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/lbin/fitset [-c] [-d] [root-path]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  switch allows a file containing inventory records to
       be passed in as an argument in addition  to  the  standard
       input.   When  this  option is specified, fitset takes the
       inventory records in the file and reclaims the file system
       space  and  inodes they take up.  Enables debugging.  This
       option makes fitset print voluminous status information on
       standard  output.   This  information  is the initial file
       system statistics, the file system location  of  the  file
       from  each  input  record, and the statistics for the file
       system after the space required to install  the  file  has
       been deducted.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  fitset utility is used to determine if the files in a
       software subset will fit on a system.

       The fitset utility reads software subset inventory records
       from  the  standard  input  and  calculates  the number of
       inodes and the amount of disk space  the  software  subset
       requires.   For each record, fitset deducts one inode from
       the number available in the target file  system.  For  the
       space  calculation, fitset deducts the file size specified
       by each record.  Only currently mounted file  systems  are
       included in the computations.

       Space  requirements  for  files  already  on  the disk are
       adjusted by using the  difference  between  the  specified
       size and the size of the file that is already present.

       A  given  software subset can include files that are to be
       installed in several file  systems.   The  fitset  utility
       tracks inodes and file space for all file systems affected
       and returns nonzero status  if  the  remaining  number  of
       inodes  or amount of free space for any of these file systems
 is overflowed.   If  there  is  no  overflow,  fitset
       returns a status of zero.

       The setld utility uses fitset to size all software subsets
       before attempting to install them.  The root-path argument
       is  the  pathname  of  the top directory for the hierarchy
       into which the files are going  to  be  installed.  If  no
       root-path is specified, the directory '/' is assumed.

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       fitset: root-path must be absolute


              A  relative  pathname  was specified for root-path.
              The path must be absolute.  fitset:  cannot  access
              path (error-message)


              The  path  cannot  be  accessed.  The error message
              provides more information.   fitset:  root-path  is
              not a directory.


              Either root-path is not a directory or it is a symbolic
 link to something which is not  a  directory.
              fitset: <warning> path is a symbolic link to itself


              The path is a symbolic link  that  involves  cyclic
              linking.  fitset: file system path needs nnn Kbytes
              more to install the  software  specified.   fitset:
              file  system  path needs nnn more inodes to install
              the software specified.


              The file system path is out of space.  The  message
              that  is  displayed  indicates whether the error is
              insufficient space or a lack of  available  inodes.
              fitset: file system path is not writable.


              The  mode of the file system named by path does not
              permit writing into the file system.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       To determine if a particular software subset will  fit  on
       the  system,  redirect the contents of the software subset
       inventory  file  into  fitset.  For  example:   fitset   <
       /usr/.smdb./OSFEMACS350.inv To determine if the same software
  subset  will  fit   in   a   hierarchy   rooted   at
       /var/tmp/root,  the command would be: fitset /var/tmp/root
       < /usr/.smdb./OSFMANOP350.inv To determine if a particular
       software  subset  will fit on the system after the removal
       of another software subset, the command would  be:  fitset
       -c    /usr/.smdb./OSFMANOS350.inv    <    /usr/.smdb./OSFMANOP350.inv
