berkeley_db4.8_svc - Berkeley DB RPC server
berkeley_db4.8_svc [-Vv] [-h home] [-I seconds] [-L file] [-t seconds]
The berkeley_db4.8_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_db4.8_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.

This file will be removed if the berkeley_db4.8_svc utility
-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
-V Write the library version number to the standard output, and
-v Run in verbose mode.
The berkeley_db4.8_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.
