-uf server option

Specifies the action to take when a fatal error occurs.

{ dbsrv11 | dbeng11 } -uf action ...
Applies to

Unix, Mac OS X


Use this option to specify which of the following actions is taken when a fatal error occurs:

  • abort   the Unix abort function is called, and a core file is generated.

  • default   the database server behaves in the same manner as abort in all cases, except when a device-full fatal error occurs. In this case, it behaves in the same manner as defunct. This action prevents the system from trying to write a core file on a full device. This is the default behavior.

  • defunct   the database server continues running and does not call abort. Any new connection attempts made to the database server receive the SQL error of the original fatal error.
