int DbEnv::log_put(DbLsn *lsn, const Dbt *data, u_int32_t flags);


The DbEnv::log_put method appends records to the log. The DbLsn of the put record is returned in the lsn argument. The flags argument may be set to one of the following values:

The log is forced to disk after this record is written, guaranteeing that all records with DbLsn values less than or equal to the one being "put" are on disk before DbEnv::log_put returns.

The caller is responsible for providing any necessary structure to data. (For example, in a write-ahead logging protocol, the application must understand what part of data is an operation code, what part is redo information, and what part is undo information. In addition, most transaction managers will store in data the DbLsn of the previous log record for the same transaction, to support chaining back through the transaction's log records during undo.)

The DbEnv::log_put method either returns a non-zero error value or throws an exception that encapsulates a non-zero error value on failure, and returns 0 on success.


The DbEnv::log_flush method may fail and throw an exception or return a non-zero error for the following conditions:

An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.

The record to be logged is larger than the maximum log record.

The DbEnv::log_put method may fail and throw an exception or return a non-zero error for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system methods. If a catastrophic error has occurred, the DbEnv::log_put method may fail and either return DB_RUNRECOVERY or throw a DbRunRecoveryException, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
