A vovdbd tasker will be created as necessary to manage the database. This occurs when certain database commands (starting, stopping, and performing backups) are run from a host different than the configured database host.

This typically occurs when the database is configured with a remote host, but may also occur with a local database if command line operations are run from another machine. In either case, the command is automatically spawned to the vovdbd tasker as an interactive job; the command behaves identically whether run locally or remotely.

The vovdbd tasker does not consume a license, and is reserved for database-related jobs only.
