Issue/Introduction

We are working with automation to trigger a log file (LXX) spill based on the log full message. Is there a command that can mark the log as full, thus triggering a spill?

If not, what is the best method of filling the log file to generate a message that would force a log spill?

Environment

Release : 15.0

Release : 15.1

Component : CA DATACOM/DB

Resolution

There is no way to "fake out" the LXX percentage full in order to trigger a spill. If you want to have an ad hoc means to spill the LXX, you can run the DBUTLTY Spill job manually, and this would spill whatever is in the log file, and reset it as usual. If you are using an automated operations (AO) tool, that tool is set up to respond to a console message like DB00208I to submit the Spill job. Likewise, you can create a similar command that does the same thing to submit the Spill.

Therefore, the recommendation is that you create an AO command that calls the same routine as the AO message parser. This allows you much more flexibility and would consume far fewer resources than trying to force the log file to fill.
