Loading objects

When PPS starts up, it immediately builds the directory hierarchy from the encoded filenames on the persistent filesystem.

In its default configuration, PPS defers loading the objects in the directories until the first access to one of the files. This access could be an open() call on a PPS object or a readdir() call on the PPS directory.

You can change the configuration by providing the -l (“el”) option on startup to have PPS: For more information, see Running PPS.
