KVM_MKDB(8)             OpenBSD System Manager's Manual            KVM_MKDB(8)

     kvm_mkdb - create kernel database

     kvm_mkdb [file]

     Kvm_mkdb creates a database in /var/db containing information about the
     specified file.  If no file is specified, /bsd is used by default.  The
     file is named ``kvm_filename.db'', where ``filename'' is the name of the
     file read.  Various library routines consult this database.  The only in-
     formation currently stored is the kernel namelist, which is used by the
     kvm_nlist(3) function, however, in the future the database may contain
     other static information about the current system.



     The kvm_mkdb utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.

OpenBSD 2.3                      June 9, 1993                                1
