Setting DBM_TTO_SUCCESS and DBM_TTO_FAILURE

Use

You use the Database Manager CLI to define the values for the environment variables DBM_TTO_SUCCESS and DBM_TTO_FAILURE.

You use the variable DBM_TTO_SUCCESS to define the period of time after which the Database Manager exits the external backup tool, if the database kernel has sent all the data to the pipes or files. The external backup tool is also terminated if not all the data has been backed up to pipes or files, to stop the backup if there are any errors in the backup tool.

If you use Backint for MaxDB, you use this method to override the value of the parameter TIMEOUT_SUCCESS in the Backint for MaxDB configuration file.

You use the variable DBM_TTO_FAILURE to define the period of time after which the Database Manager exits the external backup tool, if the database kernel has stopped the backup due to an error. The external backup tool is also exited if the database kernel has not yet copied all data to the pipes or files. This enables extra backups to be started, for example, when making automatic backups at night.

If you use Backint for MaxDB, you use this method to override the value of the parameter TIMEOUT_FAILURE in the Backint for MaxDB configuration file.
