DBUTLTY STATUS
Console support for DBUTLTY STATUS is similar to support for MUF STATUS. The option is controlled by keyword CONSOLE_MINUTES= in the DBSYSID macro that generates the DBSIDPR loaded module.
To support the console status of DBUTLTY, do not specify a 0 (zero) for CONSOLE_MINUTES=. Specifying CONSOLE_MINUTES=0 means that you do not want console support. We do not recommend using CONSOLE_MINUTES=0. Specifying any value other than 0 allows the console command STATUS to be issued to an executing DBUTLTY as a z/OS ‘modify’ command, and DBUTLTY responds.
If you do not specify CONSOLE_MINUTES=0, DBUTLTY attaches a subtask during its startup and detaches that subtask during its ending process. The subtask supports a console STATUS command and other allowed console commands. DBUTLTY functions that include status support are: BACKUP, EXTRACT, LOAD, REORG, and RETIX.
The default is CONSOLE_MINUTES=10, indicating that every 10 minutes of execution, DBUTLTY provides an automatic status. With CONSOLE_MINUTES= not equal to 0, the first interval starts during DBUTLTY initialization. At the end of each interval, a function equivalent to the console STATUS is done. If a status is available, the message is written with the status (same message as console STATUS). If no status is available at this instant, no console message is issued. The internal STATUS does not interact with, interfere with, or hinder your ability to issue a console STATUS at any time manually.
The option to select an interval of time is only available in z/OS environments. Also, the DBFLSUB callable load process is not part of DBUTLTY and does not support the console status option.
