jbpSA — start BAR client interface on Java-capable UNIX machines
[ -d | -display] [-D prop_filename] [-h | -Help] [-l debug_filename] [-lc] [-ms nnn] [-mx xxx] [-r version]
The directory path to this command is /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/
This command operates only on UNIX systems.
The jbpSA command starts the Backup, Archive, and Restore client interface on Java-capable UNIX machines.
- -d | -display
Displays the environment variable. For example:
- -D prop_filename
Indicates the debug properties file name. The default name for this file is Debug.properties.
- -h | -Help
Displays the possible options for the jbpSA command.
- -H host
Specifies the host system that appears by default in the jbpSA logon dialog box. May be an unqualified host name or a fully qualified host name. No default.
- -l debug_filename
Indicates the debug log file name. The default name is unique to this startup of jbpSA and is written in
Prints the command lines that the application uses to access its log file.
The application does not always use the command lines to get or update data. It has some protocols that instruct its application server to perform tasks using NetBackup and Media Manager APIs. As the application evolves, fewer command lines are used.
- -ms nnn
Allows the memory usage configuration for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) where nnn is the megabytes of memory available to the application. Default: 36 MB (megabytes)
Run jnbSA on a computer with 512 megabytes of physical memory with 128 megabytes of memory available to the application.
The -ms command specifies how much memory is allocated for the heap when the JVM starts. This value may not require changes since the default is sufficient for quickest initialization of jnbSA on a computer with the recommended amount of memory.
# jbpSA -ms 36M
The memory that is allocated can be specified by using the jbpSA command or by setting the INITIAL_MEMORY option in
- -mx xxx
The -mx option allows memory usage configuration for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The xxx value specifies the maximum heap size (in megabytes) that the JVM uses for dynamically-allocated objects and arrays. Default: 512 MB.
This option is useful if the amount of data is large (for example, a large number of jobs in the Activity Monitor).
# jbpSA -mx 512M
The maximum heap size can be specified by using the jbpSA command or by setting the MAX_MEMORY option in
- -r version
Specifies which version of the Backup, Archive, and Restore client to run. NetBackup includes an administration console for all the supported versions of NetBackup. If the -r option is not specified, the default is the latest version of NetBackup.
