Table 4. IF Test Values
the 6-character hardware CPU serial number of the machine. It is available from the RMF CPU report.
For a multiprocessor, the IF command compares the CPUID with all CPU serial numbers in the multiprocessing complex.
IMS ID of the IMS system you are measuring.
Determines the set of interface commands that will be executed, depending upon whether the IMS environment is a DB/DC (CTL) environment or a DBCTL (DBC) environment.
SMF ID of the MVS system you execute. Can be found in SYS1.PARMLIB(SMFPRMnn).
The 12-character hardware CPUID of the machine (see the title line on the first page of a dump)....
The output that results from the IF command depends on whether the tests are successful or not. If a test is successful, you receive the normal messages for the command that is processed. If the test fails because of an invalid value in the command, you receive a message indicating this.
The LOG command displays a message at the system console. This command is for use in the EXEC members to indicate what commands you have set to process in that member. The format of the LOG command is:
LOG *** This message will be sent to the system console ***
The LOG command produces output that is the same as its input. A typical use is to indicate the name of the member being processed:
LOG *** Processing EMVTAM00 ***
Another typical use is to indicate the start of a task such as the EPILOG collector:
LOG *** Starting EPILOG COLLECTOR SUBTASK ***
