recovery_time option [database]

Sets the maximum length of time, in minutes, that the database server will take to recover from system failure.

Allowed values

Integer, in minutes




Can be set for the PUBLIC group only. DBA authority required. Takes effect when server is restarted.


This option is used with the checkpoint_time option to decide when checkpoints should be done.

SQL Anywhere uses a heuristic to estimate the recovery time based on the operations that have been performed since the last checkpoint, and includes both the estimated recovery time and the estimated checkpoint time for the database. So, the recovery time is not exact.
