Generally the directory structure that pulp uses for saving & serving data is not something that you should have to worry about. The Pulp server will manage it's space and the links that are created during publishing. Generally, content is stored in /var/lib/pulp/content and then when repositories are published they link back to the content from the publish locations in the /var/lib/pulp/published directory.  The /var/lib/pulp/working directory should be on a local disk on your server as it is used for temp space during repository syncing & publishing.  Regards,

Subject: [Pulp-list] Pulp repository - Consumer Group and Repository Group


I have implemented pulp infrastructure based on the following scenario's. 

1. Pulp server - bserver1.example.com [getting update from origin feed] 
2. Pulp Server & Admin Client - bserver2.example.com [getting update from parent pulp server that is bserver1] 
3. Pulp Consumer/Client - bclient.example.com 

I have created the following 3 repositories and one consumer group and synced with upstream repository from internet. Now 3 repositories configured and published with all rpms. Now i have registered bclient.example.com client with pulp server. I have installed one package also via pulp from pulp master and got installed successfully. 

As per my understanding through pulp we can save huge space for all repositories and avoid duplication. 

Pulp's usage model involves syncing multiple up-stream repositories locally; these repositories can then be cloned, which uses hard links to sync them locally with almost no disk space used. This allows us to sync a repository once, then duplicate it as many times as necessary to support multiple teams and multiple stability levels. 
Can anyone suggest me the good link to understand the directory structure and the purpose behind it in order to design well for multiple repository infrastructure to save disk space. 

Please help me on this...
