Review the following articles when you perform archiving tasks:
  • Archive SYSOUT
    The started task SARSTC performs SYSOUT archival. SARSTC is started at system IPL time and remains active until the operating system is brought down. SARSTC uses the standard subsystem interface (SAPI) to JES2 or JES3 to request SYSOUT for archival. It remains in a wait state during the periods when no SYSOUT is available for archival.
  • Archive AFP Reports
    You can archive AFP reports with a CA View ACIF (AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility) archiver. An ACIF archiver is a functional subsystem application (FSA) that runs under a separate address space called a Functional Subsystem (FSS). A Functional Subsystem Interface (FSI) maintains communication between the FSS and the JES global address space. AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility (ACIF) is a utility that is part of the IBM PSF/MVS product.
  • Archive PDF Documents
    You can archive PDF documents with the CA View PDF (PDF Indexing Facility) archiver. A PDF archiver is a Functional Subsystem Application (FSA) that runs under a separate address space called a Functional Subsystem (FSS). A Functional Subsystem Interface (FSI) maintains communication between the FSS and the JES global address space.
  • Exceptional Conditions
    When archiving SYSOUT, each record is scanned for exceptional conditions. You can have CA View check for an IEF system code, such as IEF142I, or you can specify any string of text to search as a user-specified condition.
    You specify the exception conditions with control statements to the archival started task SARSTC. Each control statement applies to one or more jobs by specific or wildcard job names.
  • Run Archival Task
    The archival task requires specific commands, parameters, and procedures. For example, you start SARSTC with the appropriate operator command.
  • Run Multiple Archival Tasks
    You can run multiple archival tasks at the same time, but each task must use a different database. The archival task ENQs on the high-level qualifiers of the database name ensure that a different database is used.
  • Automatic Archival
    The automatic report archival extension allows a site to create a copy of its reports for archival purposes. The original reports continue to print as usual. With this feature, a site can backup all reports or a specified subset of reports. If a report is lost, it can be easily reprinted from CA View.
