ovdb_monitor(8) Database maintenance


Use "ovdb_init" to start ovdb_monitor


When started (by "ovdb_init"), "ovdb_monitor" forks three processes that perform routine database maintenance tasks. These are: transaction checkpointing, deadlock detection, and transaction log removal. The process ID of the parent is written to pathrun/ovdb_monitor.pid. This PID is used by other INN commands to verify that ovdb_monitor is running.

To shut down ovdb_monitor, send a TERM signal to the process ID in pathrun/ovdb_monitor.pid . The parent process will shut down the three children and wait for their exit before exiting itself.
