Server Invocation on UNIX

[ Edited ]

Hi , Can someone please explain. How does object spawner open work-space server or stored process server session on UNIX when we submit the code? Thanks

Sorry but what do you mean by "how"?

How what?

 

English sentences need verbs, please supply one.

 

If you want to know what the spawner does: it listens for requests, and starts server processes. In the case of pooled servers, processes are only started until the pool is full, then only connections to the already running servers are established.

The spawner forks to one of the setuid root modules to change to the desired userid, and then it execs the WorkspaceServer.sh or StoredprocessServer.sh script
