public void set_q_extentsize(int extentsize) throws DbException;


Set the size of the extents used to hold pages in a Queue database, specified as a number of pages. Each extent is created as a separate physical file. If no extent size is set, the default behavior is to create only a single underlying database file.

For information on tuning the extent size, see Selecting a extent size.

The Db.set_q_extentsize method configures a database, not only operations performed using the specified Db handle.

The Db.set_q_extentsize interface may not be called after the interface is called. If the database already exists when is called, the information specified to Db.set_q_extentsize will be ignored.

The Db.set_q_extentsize method throws an exception that encapsulates a non-zero error value on failure.


The Db.set_q_extentsize method may fail and throw an exception encapsulating a non-zero error for the following conditions:

An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.

Called after was called.

The Db.set_q_extentsize method may fail and throw an exception for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system methods. If a catastrophic error has occurred, the Db.set_q_extentsize method may fail and throw a DbRunRecoveryException, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
