DB_ENV->set_thread_id_string(DB_ENV *dbenv,
    char *(*thread_id_string)(DB_ENV *dbenv,
    pid_t pid, db_threadid_t tid, char *buf));  

Declare a function that formats a process ID and thread ID identifier pair for display into a caller-supplied buffer. The function must return a reference to the caller-specified buffer. The DB_ENV->set_thread_id_string() method supports the DB_ENV->set_thread_id() method.

The DB_ENV->set_thread_id_string() method configures operations performed using the specified DB_ENV handle, not all operations performed on the underlying database environment.

The DB_ENV->set_thread_id_string() method may be called at any time during the life of the application.

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



The thread_id_string parameter is a function which returns a buffer in which is an identifier pair formatted for display. The function takes four arguments:

  • dbenv

    The dbenv parameter is the enclosing database environment handle, allowing application access to the application-private fields of that object.

  • pid

    The pid argument is a process ID.

  • tid

    The tid argument is a thread ID.

  • buf

    The buf argument is character array of at least DB_THREADID_STRLEN bytes in length, into which the identifier pair should be formatted.

If no thread_id_string function is specified, the default routine displays the identifier pair as "pid/tid", that is, the process ID represented as an unsigned integer value, a slash ('/') character, then the thread ID represented as an unsigned integer value.


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


An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.
