Metadata space usage

The push-to-client metadata uses a reasonably small amount of disk space in z/OS® UNIX, because the bulk of the metadata is UTF-8 encoded XML files. Note that the product code used for the client update scenarios can be stored anywhere on the network; it does not have to be stored in z/OS UNIX, because the related push-to-client metadata (called response files) point the client to the correct location.
