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.
