Configuring the Location of the Dataset (temp.db)

By default, Insight Server writes its dataset (temp.db) to the same drive as the Insight Server program files.
For example, if you install Insight Server on drive C, it writes the dataset to drive C.
If you want Insight Server to maintain the dataset on a different drive, or if the amount of data you expect to collect requires the use of multiple drives, you must update the Disk Files.cfg file to specify where you want Insight Server to write the temp.db file.
To configure the location of temp.db
  1. Navigate to the Components folder in the directory where you installed Insight Server.
    Example: C:\Adobe\Server\Components
  2. Open the Disk Files.cfg file in a text editor such as Notepad.
    By default, this file contains a single entry in the Disk Files structure as shown below.
    component = DiskSpaceManagerComponent:
      Disk Files = vector: 1 items
       0 = string: Temp\\temp.db
      Detect Disk Corruption = bool: true
    
    
  3. To change the location of temp.db, modify the Disk Files definition. The following example illustrates how you would edit the configuration to spread the temp.db file across drives C, D, and E:
    component = DiskSpaceManagerComponent:
      Disk Files = vector: 3 items
        0 = string: C:\\Temp\\temp.db
        1 = string: D:\\Temp\\temp.db
        2 = string: E:\\Temp\\temp.db
      Detect Disk Corruption = bool: true
    
    
    Note the use of the double backslashes in the file names above. In Insight Server configuration files, the backslash character is an escape character. It is used to express special control sequences (for example, \t for a tab character) in text. To represent an actual backslash character, you must type the backslash twice (for example, \\) to override the escape function. This applies only when editing configuration files in a text editor such as Notepad.
