This parameter indicates that all processing in the specified node is not suspended until a Quiesce is issued with the MODIFY command. You can specify this node-level parameter for as many nodes as required. Node-level initparms are processed in the order specified.

The node name parameter is the 1–16 character local node name specified in the network map of the affected node. You can also specify a partial node name with the * and ? wildcard characters. If you specify * anywhere in the node name other than the very end, you must enclose the node name in single quotes. For example, the following parameter sets Quiesce to OFF on all node names that contain DETROIT.


Refer to Suspending and Resuming Quiesce and Trace Settings for how to suspend normal operations by setting SESSIONS to Q (Quiesce) with the MODIFY command.

Modifiable through MODIFY INITPARMS command: NO
