STATUS command: Listing file recovery information
- Any user (only the system manager or the system administrator can list information about all files)
- Lists recovery information about one or more files
Where filename is the name of a Model 204 file that was opened during the run (by a user or a RESTART command). If the file name is omitted, status information is listed for all files opened during the run.
If you issue a USE command prior to issuing STATUS, all output from the STATUS command is routed to the USE data set or printer. The USE device is closed when the STATUS command concludes.
The STATUS command displays recovery information about a specified file or about all the files opened during the run.
One or two lines of information are listed for each file, in the form:
filename: current-status RESTART-status
|current-status||Special conditions that can affect discontinuities and future recovery of the file. current-status values are shown in the table below.
|RESTART-status|| appears only for a file that participated in recovery in the current run. The values of RESTART-status are shown in the following table. The checkpoint facility is described in Checkpoints: Storing before-images of changed pages.

- name2 is the value of the CCAIN parameter LOCATION in the server Online.
