       berkeley_db4.6_svc - Berkeley DB RPC server


       berkeley_db4.6_svc  [-Vv] [-h home] [-I seconds] [-L file] [-t seconds]
       [-T seconds]


       The berkeley_db4.6_svc utility is the Berkeley DB RPC server.


       -h     Add the specified home directory to the  list  of  allowed  home
              directories  that  can  be  specified  by  the client.  The home
              directory should be an absolute pathname.  The last component of
              each home directory specified must be unique because that is how
              clients specify which database environment they want to join.

              Recovery will be run on each specified  environment  before  the
              server begins accepting requests from clients.  For this reason,
              only one copy of the server program should ever be  run  at  any
              time because recovery must always be single-threaded.

       -I     Set  the  default  idle  timeout  for client environments to the
              specified number of seconds.  The default timeout is 24 hours.

       -L     Log the execution  of  the  berkeley_db4.6_svc  utility  to  the
              specified file in the following format, where ### is the process
              ID, and the date is the time the utility was started.

              berkeley_db4.6_svc: ### Wed Jun 15 01:23:45 EDT 1995

              This file will be  removed  if  the  berkeley_db4.6_svc  utility
              exits gracefully.

       -t     Set  the default timeout for client resources (idle transactions
              and cursors) to the  specified  number  of  seconds.   When  the
              timeout  expires,  if  the  resource  is  a  transaction,  it is
              aborted; if the resource is a cursor, it is closed.  The default
              timeout is 5 minutes.

       -T     Set  the  maximum  timeout  allowed  for  client resources.  The
              default timeout is 20 minutes.  If a client application requests
              a  server  timeout greater than the maximum timeout set for this
              server, the client’s timeout  will  be  capped  at  the  maximum
              timeout value.

       -V     Write  the  library  version  number to the standard output, and

       -v     Run in verbose mode.

       The berkeley_db4.6_svc utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if  an  error


              If  the  -h option is not specified and the environment variable
              DB_HOME is set, it is used as the path of the database home,  as
              described in DB_ENV->open.
