IBP_STATUS

All of these commands require the depot’s IBP password. This should be looked at again in the future and determine if a better method of security is needed. The current implementation sends the password in the clear and their is no ability to revoke a single clients access to these commands.

Modify a resource’s settings

Changes the amount of hard and soft storage along with the max duration for an allocation. It is not possible to destroy the data already present in an IBP depot, so the changes only take effect if they are equal or bigger than the currently allocated area.

max_hard max_soft max_duration \n
Server Responds status \n

Query depot for list of resources
