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