-ca server option

Enforces a static cache size.


{ dbsrv10 | dbeng10 } -ca 0 ...

Applies to

Windows, Unix


You can disable automatic cache increase because of high server load by specifying -ca 0 on the command line. If you do not include the -ca 0 option, the database server automatically increases the cache size. The cache size still increases if the database server would otherwise run into the error Fatal Error: dynamic memory exhausted.

This server option must only be used in the form -ca 0.

The following example starts a server named myserver that has a static cache that is 40% of the available physical memory and loads the sample database:

dbsrv10 -c 40P -ca 0 -n myserver "samples-dir\demo.db"
