The second parameter specifies the length of the buffer supplied in
the first parameter:

Here's an example in C (sorry, I'm not really good in C++, so I don't
know whether this is idiomatic in C++. But I hope you get the idea).

char dpb_buffer[SHRT_MAX + 1] = {0};
char *dpb = dpb_buffer;
char *username = "username";
char *password = "password";
char username_len = strlen(username);
char password_len = strlen(password);

*dpb++ = isc_dpb_version1;

/* Set number of cache buffers */
*dpb++ = isc_dpb_num_buffers;
*dpb++ = 1;
*dpb++ = CHAR_MAX;

/* Set SQL dialect */
*dpb++ = isc_dpb_sql_dialect;
*dpb++ = 1;

/* Set username */
*dpb++ = isc_dpb_user_name;
*dpb++ = username_len;
strcpy(dpb, username);
dpb += username_len;

/* Set password */
*dpb++ = isc_dpb_password;
*dpb++ = password_len;
strcpy(dpb, password);
dpb += password_len;
