jBTP is an acronym for jBASE Background Task Processor. The jBTP daemon is responsible for controlling the progress of jBASE background processes. Several jBASE commands can be used to interface with the jBTP daemon in order to start, stop or suspend and resume jBASE background processes.
A background process can be used to execute a specific list of jobs or tasks. The jBTP daemon passes the background process the next task or job from the specified task list, as and when each task needs to be executed. The jBTP daemon also logs the current status of each background process as it completes each task.
NOTE: This daemon has been removed from jBASE 4.1 and later
The jBTP command must be run by the super user to start the jBTP daemon but can be used by other users to make inquiries of the jBTP daemon. The syntax is as follows:
Where Options and Permissions required can be:
The following commands are used for jBTP control.
Note that the jBTP daemon and the PH commands are not implemented on the Windows version of jBASE prior to release 4. To start background processes on Windows, use the jstart command.
