DB5.3_CHECKPOINT(1)                  General Commands Manual                  DB5.3_CHECKPOINT(1)

       db5.3_checkpoint - Periodically checkpoint transactions

       db5.3_checkpoint [-1Vv] [-h home] [-k kbytes] [-L file] [-P password] [-p min]

       The db5.3_checkpoint utility is a daemon process that monitors the database log, and peri‐
       odically calls DB_ENV->txn_checkpoint to checkpoint it.

       -1     Checkpoint the log once, regardless of whether or not there has been activity since
              the last checkpoint and then exit.

       -h     Specify  a  home  directory  for  the database environment; by default, the current
              working directory is used.

       -k     Checkpoint the database at least as often as every kbytes of log file are written.

       -L     Log the execution of the db5.3_checkpoint utility to the specified file in the fol‐
              lowing  format,  where  ### is the process ID, and the date is the time the utility
              was started.

       db_checkpoint: ### Wed Jun 15 01:23:45 EDT 1995

               This file will be removed if the db5.3_checkpoint utility exits gracefully.

       -P      Specify an environment password.  Although Berkeley DB utilities  overwrite  pass‐
               word  strings as soon as possible, be aware there may be a window of vulnerability
               on systems where unprivileged users can see command-line arguments or where utili‐
               ties are not able to overwrite the memory containing the command-line arguments.

       -p      Checkpoint  the database at least every min minutes if there has been any activity
               since the last checkpoint.

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

       -v      Write the time of each checkpoint attempt to the standard output.

       At least one of the -1, -k, and -p options must be specified.

       The db5.3_checkpoint utility uses a Berkeley DB  environment  (as  described  for  the  -h
       option,  the  environment  variable DB_HOME, or because the utility was run in a directory
       containing a Berkeley DB environment).  In order  to  avoid  environment  corruption  when
       using  a  Berkeley  DB  environment, db5.3_checkpoint should always be given the chance to
       detach from the environment and exit gracefully.  To cause db5.3_checkpoint to release all
       environment resources and exit cleanly, send it an interrupt signal (SIGINT).

       The  db5.3_checkpoint  utility  does  not  attempt to create the Berkeley DB shared memory
       regions if they do not already exist.  The application that creates the region  should  be
       started  first,  and  once  the  region is created, the db5.3_checkpoint utility should be

       The DB_ENV->txn_checkpoint method is the underlying method used  by  the  db5.3_checkpoint
       utility.   See   the   db_checkpoint   utility   source  code  for  an  example  of  using
       DB_ENV->txn_checkpoint in a IEEE/ANSI Std 1003.1 (POSIX) environment.

       The db5.3_checkpoint 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.
