Background documentationevent_available Locate this document in the navigation structure


Use this DBM command to display whether events were triggered and can be fetched with event_receive or event_wait.

The first time you execute one of the DBM commands event_wait, event_receive or event_available, an event session is generated within the Database Manager session. Events that are triggered from this time on are collected and can be dealt with within the event session.

You get an OK message if events were triggered.


  • You have the DBInfoRead server permission.

  • The FloatingServiceTasks and PreservedEventTasks database parameters are configured large enough (see: Database Administration, Support Database Parameters).
