8.2.4 Controlling the edb-icache Daemons
edb-icache is a high-performance memory caching daemon that distributes and stores data in shared buffers. The server transparently interacts with edb-icache daemon to store and retrieve data.Before starting the database server, the edb-icache daemon must be running on each server node. Log into each server and start the edb-icache server (on that host) by issuing the following command:-u specifies the user nameTo gracefully kill an edb-icache daemon (close any in-use files, flush buffers, and exit), execute the command:If the edb-icache daemon refuses to die, you may need to use the following command:184.108.40.206 Command Line OptionsTo view the command line options for the edb-icache daemon, use the following command:
Use <char> as the delimiter between key prefixes and IDs. This is used for per-prefix stats reporting. The default is":" (colon).If this option is specified, stats collection is enabled automatically; if not, then it may be enabled by sending the stats detail on command to the server. Specifies the binding protocol. Possible values are ascii, binary or auto; default value is auto. 220.127.116.11 edb-icache-tooledb-icache-tool provides a command line interface that queries the edb-icache daemon to retrieve statistical information about a specific cache node. The syntax is:edb-icache-tool <host[:port]> statshost specifies the address of the host that you are querying.port specifies the port that the daemon is listening on.
In the following example, edb-icache-tool retrieves statistical information about an Infinite Cache server located at the address, 192.168.23.85 and listening on port 11213:
