Re:Re: automating journal file concatenation

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Feb 16, 2010
we tried this for 5 years - but we had to abandon - throughout the day on especially on heavy CVs - the offload + append job would take longer and longer to run as the aggrgate would get bigger and bigger (this was tape which was probably a mistake) - at times all journals would fill becuase it took to long to run one offload job and they were of course singltthreaded

we now offload journals and logs as they fill - and then run an idcams to get the GDGs created during the day and build a daily tape and then delete the GDGs just merged

We use a much simpler method. When offloading journals, we add the
offloaded journal file to an aggregate journal file. Once a day in the
evening backup job, we dump the aggregate file to tape and then
recreate
the aggregate file so we essentially have a day's worth of journals on
one tape. It is not exactly a real-time day because of when the job is
run, but since it is run at about the same time every day, it is what
I
could call a 'processing' day.

Hope this helps,
Petra

Apology! FW: [IDMSVENDOR-L] automating journal file concatenation (regarding a vendor's product)
"Wow - I just noticed - even though I, a vendor, said I was sending my earli=

in the TO... box with the IDMS-L address instead (i.e. the one I have now p=

I apologize for not looking close enough to know I needed to change the rep=
