public interface IServerDirectoryInfo

Provides access to properties of a server directory.

Superseded By

IServerDirectoryInfo2

Remarks

The ArcGIS Server manages a set of server directories. A server directory is a location on a file system that the GIS server is configured to clean up files it writes. Server dirtectories can be added, removed and modified by users or developers who are members of the agsadmin users group, and therfore have administrator priviliges on the ArcGIS Server.

Users and developers who are not administrators also need access to the list of server server directories and the set of their properties that are necessary for programming applications that use them as locations to write output. Users that are members of the agsusers user group, but are not members of the agsadmin user group can get information about server directories using the GetServerDirectoryInfos method on IServerObjectManager to get the IServerDirectoryInfo interface.

IServerDirectoryInfo provides read only access to a subset of the server directory's properties. These properties include:

Path: the physical path of the directory in disk

URL: the URL of the virtual directory corresonding to the physical directory

Description: the description of the server directory

CleaningMode: indicates whether the directory is cleaned by file age, by last accessed or its contents are not cleaned up

MaxFileAge: inidicates the maximum age, or the maximum time since last accessed files can be in the server directory before they are cleaned up

The properties listed above are those necessary for developers of server applications to make use of the various GIS server's server directories.
