CONFIG PARAMETER: check_interval <seconds>


Specifies how often (in seconds) the database is to be automatically scanned for inconsistencies and purged of references to destroyed objects. Any inconsistencies found are either fixed or recorded in the log file.

This periodic scan of the database looks for inconsistencies in the object chains, disconnected rooms, rooms waiting to be destroyed, and problems in the object free list. Problems that are found are reported to the log file, disconnected rooms are reported to their owners, and players are credited for rooms destroyed. The same database check can be executed using the @dbck command.
