ovdb_monitor - Database maintenance
Use "ovdb_init" to start ovdb_monitor

processes that perform routine database maintenance tasks. These are:
transaction checkpointing, deadlock detection, and transaction log removal.
The process ID of the parent is written to

To shut down ovdb_monitor, send a TERM signal to the process ID in
. The parent process will shut
down the three children and wait for their exit before exiting itself.
