Defining a filter in a log scan step

This topic explains how to define a filter in a log scan step.

Before you begin

Ensure that you understand the concepts presented in Filter definitions.

To define a filter in a log scan step

  1. In the BMC AMI Log Master for Db2 Main Menu, select an option from 0 through 7.

    Depending on the option that you choose, you might be prompted to choose whether you want a Backout Integrity report in addition to the generated SQL. Enter Y or N and press Enter to continue.

    Log Master displays a task dialog panel for the action that you selected:

      Select an Option. Then press Enter.

  4. Select an operator and press Enter.

    Log Master displays a value entry panel that depends on the field that you selected. This example defines a table name as the selectable field, so Log Master displays the Table Name Value panel:.

                                      Table Name Value                
                                                           
               Operator . . . : Equal                                 
                                                           
               Enter table owner and name below. If either field      
               contains non-alphanumeric or national characters,      
               enclose it in quotation marks. Press F3 when finished. 
                                                           
               Owner  . . . . . DB2DBA

               F1=Help F3=Exit F4=Zoom F12=Cancel
  5. Type a value and press F3.

    Log Master displays the Structured Filter Maintenance panel, as displayed in the following figure. The filter in the example selects log records by table name.

  6. To insert, delete, or edit predicates, type the appropriate action code in the ACT column and press Enter.

    For more information about the available action codes, press F1 to access the online Help, or see Action codes in the Log Master online interface
