Default: False
Range: True or False
Related command-line option: ‑o
Related parameters: min_check_time
Applies to: Command-line client (dbutility) only

Note: This parameter is only used by the command-line client dbutility. The blackout_period parameter in the scheduling section of the configuration file renders this method obsolete.

The controlled_execution parameter forces the program to check the values of the stop_time and end_stop_time columns of the DATASOURCES table. These columns enable an application external to DATABridge to specify a block of time during which DATABridge Client operations are disallowed. If the DATABridge Client determines that this period of time exists, update processing is stopped. Any attempts you make to restart the DATABridge Client also fail until the blackout period is over or the stop_time and end_stop_time columns are set to 0.
