    QUESTION:

    What is the +DSCRL parameter and how is it used?
     


    ANSWER:

    The +DSCRL parameter is a global NGT utility parameter.  It is used to verify that, after a utility has issued a -STOP or -START command for an object, the command completed. Before a utility starts a function, it issues DB2 -STOP and -START commands to put the table space in a state suitable for the utility. If, by the end of the time limit specified in DSCRL, the table space is not in the desired state, the utility issues an error message and fails.

    +DSCRL determines how often and how many times the status should be checked.
    The format is +DSCRL(mmssth,count)
    The default is +DSCRL(000100,100)
    This means the utility will check the status every 1 second with a maximum of 100 retries. This combination of parameters would make the utility wait for 100 seconds before terminating the utility on this object.
