-phl database server option

Sets history tracking for specified database server properties.

dbsrv17 -phl { OFF | ON | NONE | property-name, ... }

On Unix, quotation marks are required when more than one parameter is supplied:



Applies to

All operating systems.

Allowed values
  • ON When PropertyHistoryList is turned on, a default list of properties is tracked. The default is ON.
  • OFF When PropertyHistoryList is turned off property tracking is disabled for the database server.
  • NONE Setting this property to NONE enables property tracking, but no properties are tracked by the database server. Only properties requested by databases are tracked.
  • Comma-delimited list of database server properties

    Specify a comma-delimited list of database server properties to track.


The -phl database server option allows you to specify what database server properties, if any, are to be tracked by the server.. If this option is not set or is set to ON, then the database server uses the default setting of the PropertyHistoryList database server property.
