The Configure Output Queue Trigger (CFGOUTQTRG) command allows you to start or stop output queue monitoring for specific output queues.

This command should be the first one run as it also sets up the data queue that is needed by the OUTQTRG application.

  • Output Queue - Enter the output queue and library of the output queue you want to monitor or stop monitoring.
  • Action - Enter *START to start monitoring for a specific output queue, or *STOP to stop monitoring for a specific output queue.

Use the Start Output Queue Monitoring Service (STROUTQTRG) command to start the output queue monitoring service job.

  • Job Queue - Enter the job queue to submit the output queue monitoring service job to. This job queue should be one that allows multiple jobs to be run. For example, if you specify QBATCH and it is only set up to handle one job at a time, because this job runs continuously no other jobs will be able to be run.
  • Debug - Used to specify if the output queue monitoring job should produce debug output in the job log. If set to *YES, then messages that verify spooled files that are received as well as what command, if any, are run for the specific spooled file.

End Output Queue Monitoring Service Job (ENDOUTQTRG)

                          End OutQ Trigger (ENDOUTQTRG)

Type choices, press Enter.

Print job log . . . . . . . . . *NO *YES, *NO

Use the End Output Queue Monitoring Service Job (ENDOUTQTRG) command to end the output queue monitoring service job. Ending this job does not mean that output queues will continue to be monitored. Instead, this halts the processing of spooled files temporarily. If output queues are still being monitored through the CFGOUTQTRG command, then when this job is started again the queued spooled files will resume where they were left off.

  • Print job log - Use this command to print the job log of the output queue monitoring service job when it ends.

Work with Output Queue Triggers (WRKOUTQTRG)

Use the Work With Output Queue Triggers (WRKOUTQTRG) command to work with the rules set up to monitor spooled files. This command accepts no parameters.

The WRKOUTQTRG command display can be seen in Chapter 3.
