Quick check for ITM situation(s) triggering

Body

Think a situation should be firing and it isn't?  You can always do a quick and dirty check to see what is happening at the HUB by using the kdstsns tool to query the TEMS database.  This is an internal tool and it is an easy way to "dump" information from the TEMS tables.

It is located under the following directories:

  • Windows - $CANDLEHOME\cms
  • UNIX -  $CANDLEHOME/Mplatform>/ms/bin


You must set SQLLIB to the location where the SQL you want to run resides.

        example:

 

  •  WINDOWS:  set SQLLIB=c:\IBM\ITM\cms\sqllib
  • UNIX:     export SQLLIB=/opt/IBM/ITM/<platform>/ms/bin/sqllib


kdstsns can be run from the CLI or interactively.

example of CLI

 

 

  •  kdstsns FILE.SQL *HUB 
  •  kdstsns FILE.SQL *HUB > file.out   (to pipe the output to a file)


example of interactive:

        C:\IBM\ITM\CMS>kdstsns

                To terminate the program at any time, enter "end"

                Enter NCS Address Family or "Node" (default: *HUB):ip.pipe   (this is the protocol)
        
                Enter host name/address :MY-HOSTNAME         (the hostname for the HUB)

                Enter NCS Server Port Number (eg. 1024, ....):1918  (the port to communicate on)

                Path Specification:

                NCS:{SOCKET=ip.pipe:IBM-211ADFE64C0[1918]} CT/DS:{SERVER=SRVR01 USER=DSTSNS}
                Socket Specifcation:

                ip.pipe:MY-HOSTNAME[1918]
                Server    Version: 622 Build: 11080 Host Type: 6 Host Level: 1 Feature: NLS=Y
                Requester Version: 622 Build: 11080 Host Type: 6 Host Level: 1 Feature: NLS=Y
                Server Options: Case Matching = 0
                Enter SQL member name (or "end" to quit) ...  predicate.sql
                

The SQL will be this:

SELECT RULENAME, PREDICATE
FROM O4SRV.SITDB;

RULENAME will look similar to the situation name.  Take the PREDICATE, it is the SELECT statement and repeat the above.  If a row is returned
then the situation should be firing.  If no rows are returned then it will not fire.

NOTES: The *.sql extension is optional on the member (script) name when calling the command, so "kdstsns FILE *HUB" works as well

        When querying tables on remote TEMS's, the interactive method is required unless you alter the SQL in the member file to add the "AT ( ...)" clause
        example:  
        
        SELECT RULENAME, PREDICATE
        FROM O4SRV.SITDB
        AT ('tems name');
