      Reorg of working directory and log file stuff for start/swap/end · 533dc18f

      experiment. Here is mail to tbops:
      
      * Moved the working directory for experiment setup/swap/end to a new
        directory located on boss instead of over NFS to /proj/$pid/$eid. This
        new location is /usr/testbed/expwork/$pid/$eid.
      
      * Changed the name of the directories we create in /usr/testbed/expinfo to
        $pid-$eid.$index where $index is a new autoincrement field in the DB
        table. I really hated the names that were created before.
      
      * Changed where logs are written from /tmp to the new location in
        /usr/testbed/expwork/$pid/$eid.
      
      Okay, why.
      
      * We no longer operate on NFS mounted directories that might hang. Its
        easier to catch the situation where a copy of the log file over at the
        end of experiment creation fails cause of an NFS problem.
      
      * We no longer have user writable files that are inputs to other parts of
        the system (like top and ptop files).  Not that a user would be bad, but
        it closes a hole.
      
      * We no longer copy user writable files from /proj to boss where we might
        fill up an important filesystem cause the user put a .ndz file in the the
        working directory. Not that a user would be bad, but it closes a hole.
      
      * Its easier to save all the log files this way, for each swap in and
        out.
      
      * Removing a directory over NFS is a royal irritant when someone is CD'ed
        into that directory or looking at a file on the other side (the astute
        observer will peg this as the reason I went down this idiotic path in the
        first place!).
      
      * About 6 other reasons that I can no longer remember. Seriously, I really
        had more reasons I can no longer remember! :-)
