-dt server option

Specifies the directory where temporary files are stored.


{ dbsrv10 | dbeng10 } -dt temp-file-dir ...

Applies to

All servers and operating systems, except shared memory connections on Unix.


You can use the -dt option to specify a directory for temporary files. If you do not specify this option when starting the database server, SQL Anywhere examines the following environment variables, in the order shown, to determine the directory in which to place the temporary file.

If none of the environment variables are defined, SQL Anywhere places its temporary file in the current directory on Windows, and in the /tmp directory on Unix.

Temporary files for shared memory connections on Unix are not placed in the directory specified by -dt. Instead, the environment variables are examined, and /tmp is used if none of the environment variables are defined.
