public int lock_detect(int flags, int atype) throws DbException;


The DbEnv.lock_detect method runs one iteration of the deadlock detector. The deadlock detector traverses the lock table and marks one of the participating transactions for abort in each deadlock it finds.

The flags parameter is currently unused, and must be set to 0.

The atype parameter specifies which transaction to abort in the case of deadlock. It must be set to one of possible arguments listed for the DbEnv.set_lk_detect interface.

The DbEnv.lock_detect method returns the number of transactions aborted.

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


The DbEnv.lock_detect 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 DbEnv.lock_detect method may fail and throw a DbRunRecoveryException, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
