P or STOP command
The STOP command stops any interface subtask. To terminate EPILOG collector operation, issue a STOP command to the interface. The system console operator enters the STOP command using the MVS MODIFY command. The STOP command needs a task ID to know which task to stop. This ID can be found using the DISPLAY or LIST command described earlier in this chapter. The format of the STOP command is:
F M0IMSA,STOP ID=EP
The output of STOP consists of task termination messages followed by a task detached message. If the task does not promptly honor the interface request for termination, the interface is forcibly detached.
S or START command
The START command starts the EPILOG and DEXAN collectors as interface tasks.
A sample START command for EPILOG for your site is in rhilev.midlevRKANPAR(KEICOLmp). Here is the format for the START command:
where cccccccc is the name of the member that contains startup options and collector group definitions.
Note: Issuing the START EPILOG command automatically starts the DEXAN collector.
If you run OMEGAMON II’s EPILOG historical component during the same IPL of your system as the predecessor product, EPILOG for IMS, Version 320 or earlier, you must specify the CMPAT=YES parameter on the START EPILOG command.
During collection (that is, after EPILOG starts), you can change its options with the following command:
M0MIMSA,VARY ID=EP OPTION=member name
If you issue this command, the new options take effect at the end of the current interval (as specified with the interval keyword in the previous option member).
