Sun StorageTek 5800 System SDK Developer's Guide

Introduction to the Emulator

The 5800 system emulator mimics the behavior of a 5800 system server. This feature enables you to test software being developed for a 5800 system without having to access a 5800 system server. The emulator stores all data and metadata on the local hard drive. This data is by default stored in the emulator/var directory.
