Using the file tables screen

Like the SirFile file detail screen, the file tables screen displays information about open files in the region using statistics taken directly from the files' tables. If a file has a warning or prediction stored against it, it is color-highlighted and a pointer (=>) is placed to the left of its name.

For descriptions of the individual statistics, see the screen's online Help and File statistics displayed in SirMon. For additional information about file statistics, see File statistics and tuning.

Command line options

The following commands work on this screen:

USER nnn Restricts the view to files held open by the specified user number (user ID does not work).
SUBSYS name Restricts the view to files held open by the specified application subsystem. An asterisk (*) can be used as a wildcard character, so SUBSYS SIR* displays files that have an enqueue on them by any subsystem beginning with SIR.
FILE filename Restricts the display to the named file. An asterisk (*) can be used as a wildcard character, so FILE *ADAC* displays any files whose names contain the string ADAC.
n Where n is any number. Scrolls the display forward the specified number of files.
-n Where n is any number. Scrolls the display backward the specified number of files.
F filename or
/
filename
Searches forward in the file list for the requested file name and makes it the first line on the display.
-F filename or
-/
filename
Searches backward in the file list for the requested file name and makes it the first line on the display.
Top Moves the display to the top of the file list.
Bottom Moves the display to the bottom of the file list.
M When using the PF7 key or the PF8 key, scrolls up or down to the top or bottom of the list of files.
SORT stat x Where stat is the screen name of any of the displayed statistics, and x is A or D, for ascending or descending. Multiple sort criteria may be specified, as in the following example:

SORT RETRYC A, NRECMAS D

OPEN filename Opens a file. This is useful if you want to guarantee that a file is included in a refresh operation you are about to initiate.
CLOSE filename Closes a file. Any file that you have open can be closed, except SIRFILE, SIRLOCAL, and CCASYS (the required application subsystem files for SirFile).
