NAME

       ovdb_monitor - Database maintenance

SYNOPSYS

       Use "ovdb_init" to start ovdb_monitor

DESCRIPTION

       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.
