MAX_FILE_WAIT_SECS <seconds> | -1 | 0

To control delete node and space reclamation threads' access to files, c-tree Server automatically detects when a file open fails due to the internal threads having the file open and it signals the threads to close the file. It then tries to open the file again.

This keyword sets the number of seconds a user thread waits for the internal threads to close the file before retrying.

A value of 0 (the default) sets no limit on the wait loop.

A setting of -1 disables this feature.

The maximum value is 86400. Specifying a greater value sets the limit to 86400 seconds.

This keyword allows an application to avoid error 12 with sysiocod -8 when trying to open c-tree files in exclusive mode.

Default: 0
