Continuous operation with the Dynamic Parameter Manager

The Dynamic Parameter Manager (DPM) is a panel-driven application where you can view or modify parameters in BBPARM members from a TS session. The BBPARM members currently supported by DPM are as follows:

BBPARM member name

Contains parameters to set


MainView AutoOPERATOR ALERT thresholds


MainView AutoOPERATOR Automation Reporter parameters


MainView AutoOPERATOR EXEC parameters


MainView AutoOPERATOR general function parameters


TapeSHARE for MainView AutoOPERATOR parameters

Additionally, the DPM application has an Activate command that can be used to dynamically change the BBPARM members that a BBI-SS PAS currently uses without restarting the BBI-SS PAS.

Windows-mode parameter editor

MainView AutoOPERATOR supports a windows-mode parameter editor.  This editor allows you to edit and manage the MainVIew AutoOPERATOR BBPARM members and the following BBPARM members:

  • BBIISPxx
  • BBIJNTxx
  • BBINODxx
  • BBISSPxx
  • BBIVARxx
  • BBIXSPxx
  • AAOMQLxx
  • AAOMQMxx
  • AAOPLXxx
  • AAOTRNxx

You can access the PASPARM view from the EZAO view by clicking on the Parameter Members link:
