Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide Check stored Processes

The stored function performs a variety of important tasks such as deadlock and transaction operations of the message database, enforcing aging policies, and expunging and erasing messages stored on disk. If stored stops running, Messaging Server will eventually run into problems. If stored doesn’t start when start-msg is run, no other processes will start.

Table 20–12 stored Operations
