Reports
Chapter 6 contains instructions for how to run reports in Q-Xcelerator. Sections contained in Chapter 6 include:

Overview


Q-Xcelerator generates two types of reports:
  • Q-Xcelerator Configuration Report
  • Q-Xcelerator Log File Report
  • Both reports are generated by batch programs that are launched interactively from the Q- Xcelerator Report Menu screen.

    Generating a Q-Xcelerator Configuration Report

    To generate a Q-Xcelerator Configuration Report:
  • From the Main Menu, select Report Menu (SUBMENU).
  • Select Generate Configuration Report.
  • By default, the Q-Xcelerator Configuration report is saved to the $STDLIST as QXLCNFIG. To change the location of the output file, follow the procedure outlined in "Setting the Output File".
    An example Q-Xcelerator Configuration Report is shown in Figure 6.1.

  • Queue Number
  • Queue Name
  • MPE Queue Base
  • MPE Queue Limit
  • Queue Assignment List
    The Queue Assignment List provides two lines of information for each pre-defined queue assignment. The first line shows:
  • Assignment Number
  • Queue Name
  • Group ID
  • Logical Device Number
  • Level ("L")
  • Reset Percentage
  • Job Flag ("J")
  • Sessions Y/N Flag ("S")
  • Ignore Flag ("I")
  • From/To Time
  • Valid Days.
  • The second line shows the Logon ID and Programs for the assignment.

    Setting the Lines per Page

    To specify the number of lines on the Q-Xcelerator Configuration Report output file before a page break occurs:
  • From the Main Menu, select Report Menu (SUBMENU).
  • Select Set Lines per Page.
  • Enter a value. The default is 60 lines per page.
  • Setting the Output File

    By default, the Q-Xcelerator Configuration report is saved to the $STDLIST as QXLCNFIG. To designate a different output file:
  • From the Main Menu, select Report Menu (SUBMENU).
  • Select Set Output File.
  • Type a name for the output file. The name should be eight characters or less, beginning with an alphabet character, not a number.
  • The new output file will be save to the logon group.

    Streaming the Q-Xcelerator Log Reporter in Batch

    The Q-Xcelerator Log Report is a record of changes that Q-Xcelerator makes to processes run during the reporting period. The report may be run as a batch job using the job stream provided with Q-Xcelerator. This job stream file will first need to be edited to set the various reporting options desired within the job stream, itself.
    To stream the Q-Xcelerator Log File Reporter job:
  • From the Main Menu, select Report Menu (SUBMENU).
  • Select Generate Log Report.
  • At the prompt, "Stream QXL job (Y)?", reply Y (Yes).
  • The screen will show the Job numberand confirm that the job is launched.
