#include <db.h>

DB_ENV->mutex_set_tas_spins(DB_ENV *dbenv, u_int32_t tas_spins);  

Specify that test-and-set mutexes should spin tas_spins times without blocking. The value defaults to 1 on uniprocessor systems and to 50 times the number of processors on multiprocessor systems, up to a maximum of 200.

The database environment's test-and-set spin count may also be configured using the environment's DB_CONFIG file. The syntax of the entry in that file is a single line with the string "set_tas_spins", one or more whitespace characters, and the number of spins. Because the DB_CONFIG file is read when the database environment is opened, it will silently overrule configuration done before that time.

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

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

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



The tas_spins parameter is the number of spins test-and-set mutexes should execute before blocking.


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


An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.
