The input fields are defined as follows.

Input field

Description

SERVICE

service select code, such as ALERTS or EMA

Note

If other products are installed, services and target types (AO, CICS, CAO, IAO, IMS, DB2, or MAO) can be intermixed. The available service select codes are listed in Specifying application names in CYCLE SETUP.

TARGET

one- to eight-character identifier of the target

If TARGET and TYPE are not specified, the target displayed in the TGT field is used. If TARGET is not specified but TYPE is, the current target for the specified product line is used.

TYPE

type of product line to process the requested service

A product line type does not need to be entered when only one product line is installed. If a product line is not specified, the product line where CYCLE was invoked is used.

When multiple product lines are installed, a product line type must be specified if the service to be requested does not belong to the active product line.

DTIME

the number of seconds the specified service display is to be shown before the next display

If a time is not entered, the default specified by the INTERVAL parameter in the BBPROF data set member BBITSP00 is used and displayed in the DTIME field. The BMC Software distributed value is 3 seconds.

If the maximum of 30 services is specified, each with a display time (DTIME) of 3 seconds, the first service in the refresh cycle is displayed approximately every 90 seconds.

LOG

for IMF and MainView for DB2 services

Enter a Y (YES) or N (NO) to log screen images to the BBI-TS Image log for offline printing. The default, N, is displayed if no entry is made. A dash (–) displayed in this field indicates that Image logging is not supported for the requested service.
