If true, initialize the locking subsystem.

Namespace:  BerkeleyDB
Assembly:  libdb_dotnet52 (in libdb_dotnet52.dll) Version:


public bool UseLocking
Visual Basic (Declaration)
Public UseLocking As Boolean
Visual C++
bool UseLocking


This subsystem should be used when multiple processes or threads are going to be reading and writing a Berkeley DB database, so that they do not interfere with each other. If all threads are accessing the database(s) read-only, locking is unnecessary. When UseLocking is specified, it is usually necessary to run a deadlock detector, as well. See DetectDeadlocks(DeadlockPolicy) for more information.
