AMPS Distribution Layout

This appendix lists the layout of the AMPS distribution, with special focus on the binaries present in the layout. Use this appendix to plan your AMPS deployment.

60East recommends that all AMPS deployments contain the full contents of the /bin and /lib directories. For development installations that are extending the AMPS server, your installation should contain the /api and /sdk directories (as well as the AMPS Server SDK, available through 60East support).

The AMPS distribution contains the following items at the top level:



AMPS binaries: the AMPS server, daemon deployment scripts, AMPS utilities, and spark.


AMPS base documentation. Current versions of the documentation and additional guides are available from the 60East website.


Information on the AMPS revision history. In current distributions, this provides a link to the entry for this release of AMPS within the full revision history on the 60East web site.
