Hi -
I have a sqlite database that uses Write-Ahead Log (wal). So the main db does not update live.

I need to right an app in .net (vb) that gets real time stats.

If I copy the db file and the wal file to my local hard drive, is there anyway to flush/merge the data to update the main db.

e.g
file 1: test.db (main db)
file 2: test.db-wal (wal file holding current information)

want to flush test.db-wal into test.db  so the the most resent information is in the main db

Thanks in advance

The synchronization between wal and main is called "checkpoint"
It seems that doing a "checkpoint" is not possible using .NET library, at least there is nothing documented about this.

The operation seems to be available from the C library, you have below the documentation but I couldn't find an example.

Theoretically you can call C libraries from .NET.

Thanks for the insight. I looked for a .net solution but there is nothing out there...
