Defining history parameters in BBIPROF

Several parameters affect how many records are displayed in the following history views:
  • CHIST and CHISTINT from the CHISTORY selection dialog

  • CTGHIST from the CTGHSTRY selection dialog

These parameters, defined below, can be overridden by defining them in a BBIPROF library member. A sample BDR#DEF can be found in the BBSAMP data set.

For MainView terminal sessions, BBIPROF is allocated in the MainView CLIST. Each user can have their own BDR#DEF member by concatenating their user BBIPROF in the MainView CLIST.

For MainView Explorer sessions, a BBIPROF DD statement that references the library containing the BDR#DEF member can be added to the MainView Explorer STC procedure, and that member will be used by all MainView Explorer users.

BDR#DEF contains parameters in the form: KEYWORD VALUE. They can be in any order, except TIMESTAMP which must be the first entry. The following is a sample definition:

TIMESTAMP 2007/07/04
MAXREC 10000 ;
DEFREC 5000 ; 
MAXEXC 10000 ;
DEFEXC 2000 ; 
MAXMSG YES;   
EXCMSG YES;

Definitions are as follows:

  • TIMESTAMP can consist of any string. The time stamp must appear on the first line.

  • MAXREC specifies the maximum number of records to return per PAS. The default is 10000.

  • DEFREC specifies the default number of records to return per PAS if the value is not specified in the CHISTORY view. The default is 5000.

    Note

    The MAXREC and DEFREC values are divided by the number of targets in the current context to determine the maximum or default number of records per target for that PAS that are to be returned.

  • MAXEXC specifies the maximum number of records to read that do not satisfy the parameter set’s filter condition per CICS. The default is 10000.

  • DEFEXC specifies the number of records to exclude per CICS. The default is 2000.

  • MAXMSG specifies whether the following message will be displayed when the maximum record count has been reached:

    BBKT6E04I The maximum record count of xxxx has been reached for cccccccc at record for yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss

    The variables are as follows:

    • xxxx is the value in the Record Count field.

    • cccccccc is the affected system.

    • yyyy/mm/dd and hh:mm:ss are the date and time of the record when the record count is reached.

    Setting MAXMSG to YES means the message will be displayed. The default value is YES.

  • EXCMSG specifies whether the following message will be displayed when the maximum excluded record count has been reached:

    BBKT6E03I The exclude record count of xxxx has been reached for cccccccc at record for yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss

    The variables are as follows:

    • xxxx is the value in the Record Count field.

    • cccccccc is the affected system.

    • yyyy/mm/dd and hh:mm:ss are the date and time of the record when the record count is reached.

    Setting EXCMSG to YES means the message will be displayed. The default value is YES.

  • CTGHIST provides similar messages with message number prefixes BBKRC0* instead of BBKT6E*.
