Using the Octops Program to Determine What Processes are Running on the System


To view information about the processes that are running on the current host computer, issue the octops command from the operating system command prompt.

This displays the Process ID (PID), Port Number (PORT), Database Instance Name (DBNAME), database snapshot number and subversion number (DB_VERSION), and the section of the nucleus.ini file where the configuration information is stored (INI_SECTION), for each active Octopus/Agent process on the system. When Octopus is operating in Public Update mode, the DB_VERSION value will increment by 0.1 with each successful COMMIT [WORK] command; the DB_VERSION increases by 1 (to n.0) with each successful KEEP CHANGE operation. Refer to the SAND CDBMS Persistent Mode Operations (Time Travel) section of the SAND CDBMS Administration Guide for more information about database snapshots.

Note:
If the value displayed for DB_VERSION is a negative number, Octopus has failed to start an OctoEng for the database in question. For details about the failure, consult the Octopus log file.
