Message SYBIMM147S; tasks

VM:Backup High-Speed Disaster Recovery Option (HiDRO)


Better understand the meaning of message SYBIMM147S;

I have:

88 tasks done.
16 active tasks.
120 tasks at total.

120-89=31 waiting tasks. Inside these 31 tasks I have the 16 active, right ?
I would say that there is not 31 waiting tasks, rather 15.

Am I understanding correctly?

Release : 2.8 

Component : VM:Backup HiDRO


This is what the values from the HIDRO Q Q command output represent:

SYBIMM042S "Outstanding Requests":
  • Outstanding tape mount
  • Outstanding DASD mount
  • etc.
SYBIMM139S "Active Tasks":
  • The total number of tasks currently on the internal ACTIVE queue chain ... 
  • They are running but have not completed yet
  • They may be included in the "Outstanding Requests" count
SYBIMM147S "Waiting Tasks":
  • This is the total number of tasks that have not been started yet.
  • When a task that has never been started is started, this count is decremented by ONE.
SYBIMM576S "Query Job Output":
  • the "of NNN commands" number is the total number of commands read in from the SYSIN file.
  • the "At" number is calculated at the time the command is issued and is NNN - WAITING


ACTIVE commands are not included in WAITING commands because they have been started.

What the active commands are included in is the "At NN" number of the SYBIMM576S message ... so that "At NN" number is the number of tasks that have been started and have completed or are still "ACTIVE".


So, in your example:

<<< snip >>>
VMBAT008:   0 SYBIMM576S Job MD-24Z4Y  Owner VMBAT008  Etime 2:18:35          
VMBAT008:                At 89 of 120 commands                               
VMBAT008:   0 SYBIMM042S No Outstanding Requests                              
VMBAT008:   0 SYBIMM139S 16 Task(s) ACTIVE                                    
VMBAT008:   0 SYBIMM147S 31 Task(s) WAITING 
<<< snip >>>


The numbers were all just the correct combination which may have led to your confusion.
