Processing the repository
Create a repository catalog
A repository catalog is created when you install Fast Path Analyzer/EP or Fast Path Online Analyzer/EP. However, you might want to have more than one repository catalog. If you want to create an additional repository catalog, you must allocate a VSAM KSDS to store it, then initialize it by executing the PFPEPR00 offline utility program using the PROCESS_EPR command.
Create and modify allocation rules
You can set up allocation rules using the PROCESS_EPR command and its associated subcommands and keywords available in PFPEPR00. You can also list, modify, or delete allocation rules.
Activate repository processing
Repository processing is activated when requested during execution of either an online or offline analysis process.
Manage the statistics catalog entries
You can perform maintenance on the repository as needed using the PROCESS_EPR command and its associated subcommands and keywords available in the PFPEPR00 offline utility program. It also includes adding, listing or deleting statistics catalog entries for statistics data sets.
Retrieve statistics from the repository
Several methods are available for retrieving information from the repository to generate reports or create a historical file for other analysis mechanisms.
Use Fast Path Manager/EP ISPF panels
You can use Fast Path Manager/EP ISPF panels as an optional method to view the repository catalog, delete statistics catalog entries from the repository catalog, or request reports.
