int log_put(DB_LOG *logp, DB_LSN *lsn, const DBT *data, u_int32_t flags);
The log_put function appends records to the log. The DB_LSN of the put record is returned in the lsn argument. The flags argument may be set to one of the following values:
The caller is responsible for providing any necessary structure to data. (For example, in a write-ahead logging protocol, the application must understand what part of data is an operation code, what part is redo information, and what part is undo information. In addition, most transaction managers will store in data the DB_LSN of the previous log record for the same transaction, to support chaining back through the transaction's log records during undo.)
The log_put function returns the value of errno on failure, and 0 on success.
The log_put function may fail and return errno for any of the errors specified for the following Berkeley DB and C library functions: abort(3), close(3), dbenv->db_paniccall(3), fcntl(3), fflush(3), fprintf(3), free(3), fsync(3), getenv(3), getpid(3), getuid(3), isdigit(3), lseek(3), malloc(3), memcpy(3), memset(3), open(3), sigfillset(3), sigprocmask(3), snprintf(3), stat(3), strerror(3), strlen(3), time(3), unlink(3), vfprintf(3), vsnprintf(3), and write(3).
In addition, the log_flush function may fail and return errno for the following conditions:
The record to be logged is larger than the maximum log record.
