Modes of Operation

Modes of Operation


The reporter is a central feature of EPILOG. It displays information from the EPILOG datastore (EDS). You can invoke the reporter in batch under native TSO (in two modes), or under ISPF (in three modes). Table 5 describes these modes of operation.

Table 5. EPILOG Reporter Modes of Operation

Mode Batch

How It Operates Reads a set of commands in a

dataset pointed to by the RKEI2IN DD statement. Output appears in a dataset which the RKEIOUTR DD statement points to. Messages are in the RKEIOUTM dataset.


EPILOG includes a sample batch procedure along with input for some sample reports. The Configuration and Customization Guide describes these.

TSO Fullscreen

A CLIST allocates the necessary files and CALLs the EPILOG load module. The thilevTKANSAM(KEICLIST) dataset invokes the reporter in this manner.

In this mode, EPILOG performs full-screen I/O and provides for scrolling of displayed data.

Requires either the RKEI2IN or RKEIOUTR filenames. EPILOG operates like any other batch program which executes under TSO. It does not do full-screen TGETs and TPUTs.

This is the normal TSO conversational mode; when the screen is full, three asterisks at the bottom prompt you to press Enter to see the rest of the output.

CLISTs use ISPF panels to define the necessary PF keys (including those for the ISPF SPLIT and SWAP commands) and invoke the EPILOG load module by CALLing an interface module named EBSPFDR.

This mode allows you to use a second ISPF session while executing the EPILOG reporter.

TSO Batch Function

ISPF split-screen

The OMEGAMON II for DBCTL Historical Component (EPILOG) Users Guide contains a complete explanation of EPILOG operations under TSO and ISPF split-screen modes.
