This command will pause all database operations, through jEDI, to the jBASE database.
Note: This utility is only available in jBASE 4.1 and later.
DatajBASE paused at Mon Nov 25 15:59:53 2002
For READ and WRITE operations
Updates are denied also to root users
Transactions will be blocked immediately.
The -a option means that administrators (e.g. root users on UNIX) can still make updates to the database.
The -n option specifies the database to pause (Note: This option is restricted to jBASE 5)
The -r option still allows read operations on the database and therefore only pauses updates.
You can run the command a number of times with different options. For example, you might run it with the -a option to allow root users continued access. When you are sure all your normal users are paused, you can run it again without the -a option, which will suspend the updates for all users.
