How are the default_lock_period, doc_lock_period, and file_lock_period in pc_server_defaults (util j/5) different?
Will editing a record "renew" the lock?
As described in the System Librarian Guide and the ALEPH Configuration Guide,
* a doc_lock_period is for *doc* records (bib, adm, hol, authority, course reserve, ILL);
* a default_lock_period is for all other records; and
* a file_lock_period "defines the lock period of files (tables) edited through alephadm".
All are defined in seconds.
Editing the record on your PC does *not* affect the lock. The server doesn't know anything about the editing you are doing. If you save the record to the server and then retrieve it again, that will start a new lock period.
