EVENT HISTORY LOG
Similar to the System Log on the i-Series system, AERIS utilities include a logging facility for important events. This log is supported at the Company level. It can be analyzed using QUERY. As functions are identified as important, code is added to log key events. Conventionally these functions will log both a beginning event (Action = BOJ) and a successful completion event (Action = EOJ). The first functions to use the Event History were the company backups.
These are the standard Event History functions used from any application
The Event Logger is a program, EVENTLOG, in the Utilities library that adds a record to Event History. It records when the event occurred according to the computr clock, the job descriptors and the following data which is passed as parameters:
- The application being run. e.g. RCV
- The function being processed. e.g. POST
- The action. e.g. BOJ, EOJ
- A descriptive comment.
