7 Performance Analysis and Tuning : 7.2 Infinite Cache : 7.2.4 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 name
-m specifies the amount of memory to be used by edb-icache. The default is 64MB.
-d designates that the service should run in the background
To 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:
To view the command line options for the edb-icache daemon, use the following command:
Specifies the binding protocol. Possible values are ascii, binary or auto; default value is auto.
edb-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]> stats
host specifies the address of the host that you are querying.
port specifies the port that the daemon is listening on.
