/var/opt/asdic/db

Here are the database files and some temporary spool files. For better performance during maintenance operations such as start up, database reorganization and so, make sure this is a fast disk. SSD disk might boost performance a lot. Even if not using fast disks, it is good to keep this disk separated from the other disks since heavy disk I/O are going to take place here, restricting other potential disk operations.

/var/opt/asdic/db/Makefile

Makefile to create the default databases.

/var/opt/asdic/db/defaultdb.tar

Default databases for defined search options such as criteria, ip-groups and predefined searches. Unpacked during installation if those databases are missing.

/var/opt/asdic/db/var

Some exported database data not benefiting of fast disks are stored here. Better bulk than speed.

/var/opt/asdic/tmp

Temporary files used by ASDIC. Old files can safely be deleted and are so by a cron job.
