Enabling threshold stall
Often a database administrator does not want the database to perform an emergency shutdown when the Recovery Log Threshold limit is reached. The Threshold Stall (-bistall) startup parameter quiets the database when the recovery log threshold is reached. Instead of an emergency shutdown, the database stalls forward processing until the database administrator intervenes. This provides the database administrator the options of shutting down the database, making more disk space available, and increasing the threshold amount. A message is added to the database log (.lg) file stating that the threshold stall is enabled.
