    Question

    How can I tell if Global Data Change (GDC) is running?

    Answer

    As the root or voyager user run this command:

    ps -ef |egrep -i "gdc|jobd"

     If you just see something like this:

    root     19995 19906  0 10:06 pts/0    00:00:00 egrep -i gdc|jobd

    GDC is not running.

    This is an example of what you might see if GDC is running:

    [VGER] voyager@aio0000 : voyager/ $ ps -ef |egrep -i "gdc|jobd"
    voyager   3353     1 18 01:02 ?        03:10:09 java -Dlog4j.configuration=file:///m1/voyager/proddb/ini/gdc-log4j.properties -Xms32m -Xmx64m -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -Dfile.encoding=UTF-
    voyager   3382     1  0 01:02 ?        00:01:16 java -Dlog4j.configuration=file:///m1/voyager/proddb/ini/jobd-log4j.properties -Xms32m -Xmx32m -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -Dfile.encoding=UTF
    voyager   3413     1 18 01:02 ?        03:09:58 java -Dlog4j.configuration=file:///m1/voyager/traindb/ini/gdc-log4j.properties -Xms32m -Xmx64m -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8
    voyager   3450     1  0 01:02 ?        00:01:15 java -Dlog4j.configuration=file:///m1/voyager/traindb/ini/jobd-log4j.properties -Xms32m -Xmx32m -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -Dfile.encoding=UTF-
    voyager  10158 10103  0 18:20 pts/0    00:00:00 egrep -i gdc|jobd

    Additional Information
