MIT SIPB Script Services for Athena

Can my scripts write data somewhere?

You can give your scripts permission to write data to subdirectories of your Athena home directory by granting appropriate AFS access to daemon.scripts (we provide sample commands below).

Each scripts.mit.edu user can also write up to 10MB (or 10k inodes) to /tmp. You should only write truly temporary data to /tmp.

Here are some commands that might be helpful:

The following command will grant the script server write access to
your current directory (cd into the directory that you want to write to and
then run this command):

fs sa . daemon.scripts write

The following command will grant the script server write access to all subdirectories of your current directory (you could cd into a particular directory and then run this command in order to grant the script server write access to all subdirectories of that directory):

athrun scripts fssar daemon.scripts write

The following command will list the access control list for the current directory:

fs la .
