Re: need to read an entry from the db after reading config file

Thanks for your response, Kurt. After a bunch more hunting around, I've basically come to same conclusion for when to do stuff, but the how is proving more difficult. There are lots of places where Operation's are constructed, but they all seem to have a ctx to start with. All of the places that create a ctx seem to create it from an existing ctx. How do I create a ctx, or is there a global ctx that I'm supposed to use to genesis?

Thanks again!

I'd like to store some config info in the database, with a directive in the config file indicating where to look for that config info. So, I need to search for the entry containing that data after read_config() finishes, but before the server finishes starting up.

Assuming the configuration information is database specific, then one can do the search as part of the db_open(). If its overlay specific, I believe one can overlay a db_open to do the search in. If the configuration information is global, then you just need to hack the startup to do additonal stuff post read_config() but prior to starting the listener thread.

In regards to your second question, one just needs to construct
a pseudo-Operation to do the search under.  There are a number of
examples of such in the code.
