D.1. The Continuent Tungsten Install Directory

Any Continuent Tungsten™ installation creates an installation directory that contains the software and the additional directories where active information, such as the transaction history log and backup data is stored. A sample of the directory is shown below, and a description of the individual directories is provided in Table D.1, “Continuent Tungsten Directory Structure”.
