What does aldb_server do?..

Answer / s.palanirajan

your question is not clear.your are asking albd_server or
db_server process.But i am explain both process.

albd_server process is very critical service in clearcase
server and client .
albd_server process responsible:

1.Starting and stopping other Rational ClearCase services
as needed.
2.Setting up network communications between Rational
ClearCase clients and servers that time (When a client
program wants to access a service (a VOB or view server,
for example) on a Rational ClearCase server host, it uses a
remote procedure call (RPC) to send a request to the
albd_server process on that host).
3.Managing execution of tasks run by the Rational ClearCase
scheduler.
4.Responding to requests for registry information on a
Rational ClearCase registry server host.
5.Responding to requests for licenses on a Rational
ClearCase license server host.

albd_server listen RPC port number is port 371.


db_server service is different for albd_server process .
db_server is dependent process of albd_server process.

Resonsibile for db_server process:

Client program is not able to access VOB database
directly. db_server processes manage VOB database
transactions on that host in response to requests from
client programs

Answer / sangeetha

the albd server handles a varienty of tasks.

when a cleint program wants access a service ( avob or view
serverfor example)on cleracase host,it uses a remote
procedure call to send a request to the albd server on that
host. the albd server starts the requested services if it
is not already started. then isssues a responce telling the
client the service's port number. thereafetr the client
communicates directly with the specific service, without
invoving the albd_server.
