This space provides the same content as before, but the organization of the home page has changed. The content is now organized based on logical branches instead of legacy book titles. We hope that the new structure will help you quickly find the content that you need.

Command and syntax reference

PACLOG syntax is designed to make the utility easy to install and operate.

The ALMIN control statement options enable you to specify up to four processed archive log data sets. PACLOG dynamically allocates both the input (original) log data sets and the output (processed) log data sets. You can choose to write each processed log data set to tape or disk (except copy 1, which can go only to disk) and to specify the filtering options that you want PACLOG to use when processing each log data set.

Specifying minimal command syntax, as shown in the following example, produces two copies of the processed log data sets for the local site.

ARCHIVE1 ARCHIVE2

Both copies are written to disk and cataloged. By default, maximum record filtering is used when processing the original log data sets. Also by default, the data is compressed when it is written to disk. Because no search limits are specified, all original archive log data sets that have not previously been processed by PACLOG (as indicated by the archive history file) are processed by this job. The original (unprocessed) archive log data sets are replaced.

The following example produces two copies of the processed log data sets for the local site, as in the previous example.

 ARCHIVE1 ARCHIVE2 
ARCHIVE3 PREFIX prefix3 TAPE UNIT CART FILTERIX NONE
ARCHIVE4 PREFIX prefix4 TAPE UNIT CART

This example also produces two copies of the processed log data sets for recovery site use. The recovery site log data sets are written to tape and cataloged at the local site. One of these data sets has maximum record filtering, and the other retains the index-related records. For more examples, see Examples of PACLOG JCL.

Syntax rules

Use the following rules when you specify the options in the SYSIN data set:

  • Group filter options together.

  • Group device type options together.

  • Specify at least one ARCHIVE n keyword.

  • Specify the data set prefix immediately after each ARCHIVE3 or ARCHIVE4 keyword.

  • Place subordinate keywords immediately after the corresponding primary keyword.
