Subdirectory for temporary files.
Synopsis
[Startup]    TempDirectory=n
Description
The value n is the name of a subdirectory in which to store temporary files for InterSystems IRIS. The string can be a relative pathname which would be created under the InterSystems IRIS manager directory, or a full directory specification.
The default value, Temp, identifies the following location under install-dir, the InterSystems IRIS installation directory:
install-dir\Mgr\Temp
When you set a new TempDirectory value, the system creates a subdirectory of this name under the Mgr subdirectory in the InterSystems IRIS installation directory, as shown for Temp in the previous example. This new directory becomes the InterSystems IRIS temporary directory.
Examples
To create c:\intersystems\cache\mgr\temp\ on windows
TempDirectory=Temp
