       berkeley_db5.3_svc - Berkeley DB RPC server


       berkeley_db5.3_svc [-Vv] [-h home] [-I seconds] [-L file] [-t seconds] [-T seconds]


       The berkeley_db5.3_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-

       -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_db5.3_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.

              berkeley_db5.3_svc: ### Wed Jun 15 01:23:45 EDT 1995

              This file will be removed if the berkeley_db5.3_svc utility exits gracefully.

       -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 timeout value.

       -V     Write the library version number to the standard output, and exit.

       -v     Run in verbose mode.

       The berkeley_db5.3_svc utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.


              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.
