The Rcvmanager (Recovery Manager) utility lets you monitor the backing out of incomplete transactions on tables that may be locked for access. The resulting journal is called the Transaction Journal. Rcvmanager also shows the count of records of data presently in the Down AMP Recovery Journal. This journal represents the data rows an AMP vproc must recover from the other AMP vprocs in the cluster before coming back online to the database.

The Recovery Manager utility runs only when the system is in one of the following states:

  • Logon
  • Logon/Quiet
  • Logoff
  • Logoff/Quiet
  • Startup (if system has completed voting for transaction recovery)
  • If the system is not in one of the above states, Recovery Manager will terminate immediately after you start it.
