SirFile single file thresholds

From m204wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

You may specify a set of thresholds that apply to only a single file, by placing the cursor on the filename and pressing the PF11 key, from either the SirFile main menu or from the file tables screen. The single file thresholds screen shows the same options as on the System default thresholds screen, and it also displays some file-specific information.

Single file thresholds screen


Using the single file thresholds screen

See the system thresholds screen for a description of the individual threshold settings. Other fields on the single-file screen are:

File The name of the file whose values are displayed.
CREATE/Reorg Date Date of the last CREATE run against the file. This date is taken from page trailers in the file. SirFile automatically discards its own history records for a file if it detects that a CREATE has been run subsequent to the date of the history records.
Last sample taken The data and time of the last record stored for the file in the SirFile database.
Thresholds The values of the system thresholds that are in effect for this particular file.
Current This file's current status with regard to each of the system parameters and statistics (ARETRIES, BFULLP, . . . SPILLADD).

CFULLP is not calculated in this column because of resource considerations. However, if CFULLP was collected on any sample after the first, the latest CFULLP is presented and is used in the calculation of the value in the next column.

# days until threshold exceeded If SirFile has captured at least one previous sample for the target file, a third column of values is displayed, which shows the number of days until each of the table parameters exceeds its matching threshold. If a parameter is showing little or no growth, or the table is empty, SirFile displays 9999. If the value cannot be calculated, N/A is displayed (such as for CFULLP, if it has not been collected).
Collect CFULLP for this file? Setting Y at this prompt allows SirFile to run the TABLEC command for the file. This prompt is not presented if you have specified N for the following prompt on the system thresholds screen:

Collect CFULLP only on specified files

Command line options

The following commands are allowed:

OPEN filename Opens a file. As data can only be collected for files that SirFile already knows about, or files that are currently open by any user, a SirFile user may want to manually open a file before running a refresh to guarantee the file is included in the sample.
CLOSE filename Closes a file. Any file that a SirFile user has open can be closed, except SIRFILE, SIRLOCAL, and CCASYS (the required application subsystem files for SirFile).

Function keys

These are the function keys for this screen:

PF1 Accesses full-screen help.
PF3 Return to command level or previous screen.
PF5 Delete this file-specific threshold.

This function key is not displayed and is not active when viewing or change system default thresholds.

Deleting a file-specific threshold allows the file to be evaluated against the system default thresholds on all subsequent refresh operations.

PF9 Repeats the last command-line command.
PF12 Saves the file specific thresholds and, for this file only, invokes the SirFile database refresh operation.
