DB->set_pagesize(DB *db, u_int32_t pagesize);  

Set the size of the pages used to hold items in the database, in bytes. The minimum page size is 512 bytes, the maximum page size is 64K bytes, and the page size must be a power-of-two. If the page size is not explicitly set, one is selected based on the underlying filesystem I/O block size. The automatically selected size has a lower limit of 512 bytes and an upper limit of 16K bytes.

For information on tuning the Berkeley DB page size, see Selecting a page size.

The DB->set_pagesize() method configures a database, not only operations performed using the specified DB handle.

The DB->set_pagesize() method may not be called after the DB->open() method is called. If the database already exists when DB->open() is called, the information specified to DB->set_pagesize() will be ignored.

If creating additional databases in a single physical file, information specified to DB->set_pagesize() will be ignored and the page size of the existing databases will be used.

The DB->set_pagesize() method returns a non-zero error value on failure and 0 on success.



The pagesize parameter sets the database page size.


The DB->set_pagesize() method may fail and return one of the following non-zero errors:


If the method was called after DB->open() was called; or if an invalid flag value or parameter was specified.
