ovdb_server

(overview 'helper' server)

SYNOPSIS

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.
