The DBS Control utility, dbscontrol, displays and modifies various Advanced SQL Engine configuration settings.
DBS Control settings, also called DBS Control fields, are stored in the DBS Control Globally Distributed Object (GDO). GDOs are binary files that store Advanced SQL Engine configuration settings. They are distributed to and used by every node in the system. The PDE layer of Advanced SQL Engine ensures that the GDO is consistent across all virtual processors.
