    EPS TMPDIR environment variable Reply

    My log file shows: "environment variable TMPDIR is '/tmp/" 

    When in the flow should I:

    ' setenv TMPDIR /user/me/tmp '

    ...to prevent EPS from using the /tmp/ directory on our machines.

    Why would you do that? Do you need these "tmp"-files ?

    If not, you should leave it as is to prevent you from exceeding the quota of your home directory.

    There are generated by EPS automatically during analyses.

    Not only /user/ but anywhere really. 

    The grid machines where EPS is run purposely only have a few 100 MB of storage and can fill up quickly, we have other highspeed, dedicated disks for temp files.
