Parameter: restartGraceInterval

Startup parameters change the behavior of the Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




This initialization file option specifies how many minutes the server remains in quiesce mode before a restart. During quiesce mode, the Service Manager process does not accept new connections but existing users remain connected. This parameter is intended to be used in conjunction with the restart command and allows administrators a way to let users finish their work and log off a system before it restarts. Service Manager automatically broadcasts a warning message to users who are logged on to a process that is set to restart.

Note If you set the restartGraceInterval parameter, the process will remain quiesced for a number of minutes up to the value supplied or until all users log off, whichever comes first. If either condition is met the process restarts.
