need to access $AVRS/SAVRS

Postby dhoomphatash » Thu Aug 26, 2010 11:06 pm

I have a requirement.

1) go to the $AVRS
2) find a particular job for a particular date.
3) go into the sysmsg of the job.
4) Search for a particular string(DSN name, will be unique) in all the lines.(i.e. iterating thru every line)
5) when a match is found, copy the whole line and the line next to it into a PS.

Now I can't think of an idea as how to go thru the entire process using REXX. Is it even posible? If yes could anybody shed some light as to how?

First, there isn't a separate forum for the SEA products, so I've moved this to the "All Other Tools" forum.

Other than that, obviously you'll have to find your answer from someone else who might have this product, the product manuals, or maybe through direct contact with SEA.

Their product guide mentions this:
Online Interfaces

The $AVRS Online Interfaces provide output management solutions and a comprehensive approach to the reviewing of archived Sysout and Syslog. Immediate access to data is available through batch or fullscreen reentrant interfaces, including native TSO, TSO SPF/ISPF, or ROSCOE ETSO. Online access to $AVRS is also available through VCSI, the VTAM Common System Interface. Each interface presents several similar display and command panels which are used to review and display selected elements and files in the $AVRS database.


It specifically mentions support for a batch interface, so is that an option you've tried?

The $AVRS manual in section B talks about batch jobs. One of them is $AVRPULL (BATCPULL in the installation directory) which allows you scan jobs or system logs for a given date range (absolute or relative) for particular characters OR job names. This output can be directed to a file, which your REXX program could then read and process.

the lats time the TS was around was
Last visited:Sat Aug 28, 2010 8:06 am

so the chances of getting a reply are pretty slim

good forum manners dictate to start a new topic for a question, even if related to an existing one
( many people also disregard the resurrection of old topics )
cheers
