BAR_PROGRESS_FREQ configuration parameter

Use the BAR_PROGRESS_FREQ configuration parameter to specify, in minutes, the frequency of the progress messages in the ON-Bar activity log for backup and restore operations.

onconfig.std value

range of values
0, then 5 to unlimited
takes effect
When ON-Bar starts
When you reset the value dynamically in your onconfig file by running the onmode -wf or equivalent SQL administration API command.


Example: If you set BAR_PROGRESS_FREQ to 5, ON-Bar reports the percentage of the object backed up or restored every 5 minutes. If you set BAR_PROGRESS_FREQ to 0 or do not set it, ON-Bar does not write any progress messages to the activity log.

Specify a value 5 minutes or over. Do not set BAR_PROGRESS_FREQ to 1, 2, 3, or 4, ON-Bar automatically resets it to 5 to prevent overflow in the ON-Bar activity log.

If ON-Bar cannot determine the size of the backup or restore object, it reports the number of transfer buffers sent to the database server instead of the percentage of the object backed up or restored.
