Activation of Pipe Policy Lists
During Job Optimizer Pipes execution, you can modify the current Pipe Policy List contents and dynamically activate your changes. Dynamic activation of the Pipe Policy List replaces all active (loaded) Pipe Policy Tables with the Pipe Policy Tables that are defined in the current Pipe Policy List. Dynamic activation of the Pipe Policy List also replaces the Pipe Rule defaults with the contents of the Pipe Rule defaults member (JOPDEFRL) from the control data set.
When the current Pipe Policy List has been changed, you can use a Job Optimizer Pipes command or the MainView Batch Optimizer dialog to activate it.
You can dynamically activate changes to the current Pipe Policy List only. To activate another Pipe Policy List, you must change the BatchPlex member PIPELIST parameter to point to the new Pipe Policy List and stop and restart Job Optimizer Pipes. From this point on, the new Pipe Policy List becomes current and can be dynamically activated.
When you activate a Pipe Policy List by issuing a command or by using the dialog, Job Optimizer Pipes responds with messages such as the following examples to indicate whether the activation was successful:
BMC282263I RULE LOAD STARTED. TABLE=ALL
BMC282264I RULE LOAD ENDED. RC=returnCode
If the activation is not successful, Job Optimizer Pipes issues messages that explain the error and continues to use the loaded Pipe Policy Tables.
