DB->set_q_extentsize(DB *db, u_int32_t extentsize);  

Set the size of the extents used to hold pages in a Queue database, specified as a number of pages. Each extent is created as a separate physical file. If no extent size is set, the default behavior is to create only a single underlying database file.

For information on tuning the extent size, see Selecting a extent size.

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

The DB->set_q_extentsize() 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_q_extentsize() will be ignored.

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



The extentsize parameter is the number of pages in a Queue database extent.


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