Set a threshold for the minimum and maximum time that a client waits before requesting retransmission of a missing message.

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


public void RepSetRetransmissionRequest(
	uint min,
	uint max
Visual Basic (Declaration)
Public Sub RepSetRetransmissionRequest ( _
	min As UInteger, _
	max As UInteger _
Visual C++
void RepSetRetransmissionRequest(
	unsigned int min, 
	unsigned int max


Type: System..::.UInt32
The minimum number of microseconds a client waits before requesting retransmission.
Type: System..::.UInt32
The maximum number of microseconds a client waits before requesting retransmission.


If the client detects a gap in the sequence of incoming log records or database pages, Berkeley DB will wait for at least min microseconds before requesting retransmission of the missing record. Berkeley DB will double that amount before requesting the same missing record again, and so on, up to a maximum threshold of max microseconds.

These values are thresholds only. Since Berkeley DB has no thread available in the library as a timer, the threshold is only checked when a thread enters the Berkeley DB library to process an incoming replication message. Any amount of time may have passed since the last message arrived and Berkeley DB only checks whether the amount of time since a request was made is beyond the threshold value or not.

By default the minimum is 40000 and the maximum is 1280000 (1.28 seconds). These defaults are fairly arbitrary and the application likely needs to adjust these. The values should be based on expected load and performance characteristics of the master and client host platforms and transport infrastructure as well as round-trip message time.
