Properties of Operating System Profiles

Properties of Operating System Profiles

After you create an operating system profile, configure the operating system profile properties. To edit the properties of an operating system profile, select the profile in the Operating System Profiles Configuration dialog box and then click Edit.
Service process variables that are set in session properties and parameter files override the operating system profile settings.
The following table describes the properties of an operating system profile:
Property
Description
Name
Read-only name of the operating system profile. The name cannot exceed 128 characters. It cannot include spaces or the following special characters: \ / : * ? " < > | [ ] = + ; ,
System User Name
Read-only name of an operating system user that exists on the machines where the PowerCenter Integration Service runs. The PowerCenter Integration Service runs workflows using the system access of the system user defined for the operating system profile.
$PMRootDir
Root directory accessible by the node. This is the root directory for other service process variables. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > “ | ,
$PMSessionLogDir

* ? < > “ | ,
Default is $PMRootDir/SessLogs.
$PMBadFileDir
Directory for reject files. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > “ | ,
Default is $PMRootDir/BadFiles.
$PMCacheDir
Directory for index and data cache files.
You can increase performance when the cache directory is a drive local to the PowerCenter Integration Service process. Do not use a mapped or mounted drive for cache files. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > “ | ,
Default is $PMRootDir/Cache.
$PMTargetFileDir

$PMStorageDir
Directory for run-time files. Workflow recovery files save to the $PMStorageDir configured in the PowerCenter Integration Service properties. Session recovery files save to the $PMStorageDir configured in the operating system profile. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > “ | ,
Default is $PMRootDir/Storage.
Environment Variables
Name and value of environment variables used by the Integration Service at workflow run time.
If you specify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable in the operating system profile properties, the Integration Service appends the value of this variable to its LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. The Integration Service uses the value of its LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to set the environment variables of the child processes generated for the operating system profile.
If you do not specify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable in the operating system profile properties, the Integration Service uses its LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.
