spool
Use the TV command to control trace activity, and the controlling application, for virtual printers.
This command has the following syntax:
TV,nodename [.*ALL | .*STOP | .session] [,C=]
  • nodename
    Defines the name of the virtual printer node.
  • *ALL
    Activates tracing for all sessions.
  • *STOP
    Terminates the active trace.
  • session
    Activates a trace for the session specified. The session name is the online applications APPLID.
  • C=
    Specifies a controlling application. This means that
    Spool
    tries to establish a session between the virtual printer and the controlling application even if no work is currently pending.
The output from an activated trace goes to a
Spool
file automatically opened by the trace facility. Information about this file is available by issuing the D command for the virtual printer.

TV,DEPVPRT1.TESTCICS
