jnbSA — start NetBackup Administration Console 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.
jnbSA starts the NetBackup Administration Console on Java-capable UNIX machines.
- -d | -display
Display the environment variable. For example:
- -D prop_filename
Indicate the debug properties file name. The default name for this file is Debug.properties.
- -h | -help
Displays the possible options for the jnbSA command.
- -l debug_filename
Indicates the debug log file name. The default name is unique to this startup of jnbSA and written in
Prints the command lines that the application uses to 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. The application evolves and fewer command lines are used.
- -ms nnn
Allows memory usage configuration for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) where nnn is the megabytes of memory available to the application. Default: 256 MB
Run jnbSA on a machine with 1 GB of physical memory with 256 MB 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 machine with the recommended amount of memory.
jnbSA -ms 256M
The memory that is allocated can be specified by using the jnbSA command or by setting the INITIAL_MEMORY option in
- -mx xxx
Allows memory usage configuration for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The xxx value is 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).
jnbSA -mx 512M
The maximum heap size can be specified by using the jnbSA command or by setting the MAX_MEMORY option in
- -r version
Specifies which version of the NetBackup Administration Console 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.
