NAME

       ovdb_server - overview ’helper’ server

SYNOPSYS

       Use "ovdb_init" to start ovdb_server

DESCRIPTION

       If the "readserver" parameter in ovdb.conf is true, "ovdb_init" will
       start "ovdb_server".

       "ovdb_server" opens the overview database, and accesses it on behalf of
       the nnrpd reader processes.

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