Log Master for DB2
How to use the Log Master Online Interface ALPISPF
The Log Master for DB2 online interface helps you perform the common tasks of dealing with problem transactions, migrating data, and auditing database activity. For example, the interface guides you through setting up a search for log records by using filters and time frames. Required steps are presented with explanatory Help screens that you access by pressing F1. Log Master selects default outputs, depending on the task that you are performing.
Log Master CLIST ALPISPF
At installation, one of the installation jobs places a CLIST named ALPISPF in the library named HLQ .DBCLIB, or copies ALPISPF to the library that is specified during installation. ( HLQ represents a qualifier that your environment assigns during installation.)
To run the Log Master online interface
1 Execute ALPISPF in one of the following ways:
Note: clistLibName is the name of the data set where ALPISPF exists, and ssid is the identifier of the DB2 subsystem where Log Master will run.
■ To execute from Interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF) Option 6, enter one of the following TSO commands, depending on whether you want to pass the DB2 subsystem ID (SSID):
EX ' clistLibName (ALPISPF)'
EX ' clistLibName(ALPISPF)' 'SSID (ssid)'
■ To execute from an ISPF panel, add an option to the panel that executes ALPISPF. For example, if you use LM as the option name, enter one of the following lines in the panel definition, depending on whether you want to pass the SSID:
LM, 'CMD(EX "clistLibName (ALPISPF)")'
LM, 'CMD(EX "clistLibName(ALPISPF)" SSID(ssid) )'
