MS62: MQSeries - Linear log clean-up script

Downloadable files


Abstract

MS62 provides a Perl script that can be used to either compress, gzip or delete linear logfiles that are no longer needed by MQSeries.

Download Description

This SupportPac provides a Perl script that can be used to either compress, gzip or delete linear logfiles that are no longer needed by MQSeries.

Possible Uses
In a Unix environment, this script could be run nightly from cron (along with a rcdmqimg) to delete unnecessary logfiles.

Note: This script attempts to do a potentially dangerous thing: remove files that a Queue Manager uses for recovery. If a file that the Queue Manager still needs is inadvertently deleted, then the Queue Manager will not restart. For this reason, the script has three options: to unlink (delete) unneeded logfiles, to compress (.Z) unneeded logfiles, and to gzip (.gz) unneeded logfiles. Gzip is the default so that if the script makes a mistake and thinks it should delete a logfile that the queue manager needs, the file will not be permanently removed. gunzip can be used to restore the file and the queue manager should restart.
