Berkeley DB: DB->set_h_nelem



#include <db.h>

int DB->set_h_nelem(DB *db, u_int32_t h_nelem);


Set an estimate of the final size of the hash table.

If not set or set too low, hash tables will still expand gracefully as keys are entered, although a slight performance degradation may be noticed.

The DB->set_h_nelem interface may only be used to configure Berkeley DB before the DB->open interface is called.

The DB->set_h_nelem function returns a non-zero error value on failure and 0 on success.


An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.

Called after DB->open was called.
