Environment Variables

Environment variables controlling the behavior of the library

While normally you would configure the library programmatically, there are some environment variables which may affect the library's behavior.

Environment variables are intended to aid in debugging and otherwise modifying the library's behavior on a temporary basis. Typically this may be used to increase logging, or to modify/enable a feature which has deliberately been hidden from the normal API.

Environment Variables

LCB_IOPS_NAME

Specify the name of the backend to load. This can be one of the built-in names, or it can be a path to a plugin which should be loaded dynamically.

The built-in names are:

  • libevent
  • libev
  • select
  • libuv
  • iocp (Windows only)
