1A1. Vancouver Utilities GDG system - Overview

Vancouver Utility GDG system - Basic Features

  1. After mainframe GDG files are converted (from EBCDIC to ASCII, preserving packed/binary fields), they are copied to the testdata/proddata directories & renamed with suffix '_000001' (1st generation using 6 digit#).

  2. When mainframe JCL is converted to Korn shell scripts, GDG files are identified with a trailing '_' underscore only.

  3. The JCL calls Korn shell 'functions' to determine the appropriate generation. 'exportgen0' defines the latest/highest generation (for reading). 'exportgen1' defines the next generation (for writing).

  4. Early versions of exportgen1 incremented the generation# immediately (vs delaying until the job terminated normally as on the mainframe). If a multi-step job terminated abnormally, you were advised to use the 'restart' facility (provided for every step by the VU JCL converter). But if for some reason you wanted to restart from the begining, you had to manually remove any new generations created before the abterm.

  5. The abterm problem was solved in 2007 by an enhanced version of 'exportgen1' and new function 'jobend51' called at Normal End of Job. 'exportgen1' now assigns new generations to the 'jobtmp' directory & at Normal EOJ, function 'jobend51' will move the jobtmp files back to the $RUNDATA directories. This allows you to rerun abterm jobs from the begining , but if you do restart, you will be prompted if it is OK to move any jobtmp files back to the $RUNDATA directories.

  6. JCL converter option g0/g1 is provided to control whether new GDG's are written to the original directory or to the jobtmp directory for restore at end of job, but g1 is now the default.

  7. Early versions of exportgen1 used a hard-coded number of generations to be accumulated before erasing older generations, unless you coded the gdg=... keyword on all exportgen1's for the file, which would be inconvenient.

  8. The current system provides an Indexed control file which exportgen1 accesses to get the desired number of generations for each file.

  9. We provide a utility to automatically create the indexed file by extracting all GDG filenames from all JCL/scripts, sorting,& dropping duplicates. You then edit the control file to modify the default number of generations as desired & run another utility job to load the indexed file.

1A2. Vancouver Utilities GDG system - Introduction & Overview

Vancouver Utility GDG system - Advanced Features

The indexed control file allows us to provide significant enhancements that go well beyond the original GDG implementation on the mainframe. See Part_9 for examples of these 'advanced features', but here are brief descriptions.

  1. You can specify a prior generation of a file to be defined by exportgen0 for the next run only, or until a specified expiry date/time is reached. This avoids having to modify the JCL/scripts. Note that you only have to modify one entry in the control file, whereas you could easily miss some of the possible multiple references in one or more JCL/scripts.

  2. You can specify range processing for a series of prior generations This is a powerful feature that 1 customer is already planning to make good use of. On the mainframe he had 30 tapes that had to be processed one at a time by a batch COBOL program & the operator simply mounted the tapes in turn.

  3. On the unix/linux system, all tape files are automatically converted to generation disc files, so to process the 30 tapes (now GDG disc files) separately, the customer might have to modify the JCL to hard-code the next desired generation# or he might specify via an operator keyin.

  4. With the enhanced GDG system, he edits the control file specifying the low to high range of generation#s to be processed. He can then run the batch job 30 times to process the 30 files (with no changes to JCL/scripts & no operator generation# keyins).

  5. This is possible because 'exportgen0' uses the current next generation#, which is incremented by the 'jobend51' function at normal EOJ. At the high end of the range, processing returns to normal, but an historical record is maintained in the indexed file database, making it easier to reactivate if the same cycle is repeated periodically.

  6. You can specify 'opt=c' (confirm) on control file entries to cause exportgen0 to prompt the operator to confirm the generation# selection, or to enter an alternative 6 digit generation#.

  7. The current system maintains a history of the last 30 accesses by exportgen0 and exportgen1. You can look at the control file (with uvhd) and for each of the last 30 accesses, you can see: date:time, generation# selected, lowest:highest generations on-file, jobname, step#,& program of last access.

  8. Each of the last 30 entries that define access history is identified with one of three status codes: 'G0'=exportgen0(reading current/selected gen), 'G1'=exportgen1(writing next gen), or 'AB'=ABnormal Termination (indicates file not moved from jobtmp/GDG/ back to RUNDATA/data1/).

    GDG control file history updates optional

As of June 2012, GDG control file history updates is optional depending on environmental variable GDGCTLUPDT, default GDGCTLUPDT=YES (in common_profile). Inhibiting history updates might speed up on very busy system and reduce possibility of file locks & corruption. GDGCTLUPDT=YES is required to use some advanced features & could be useful debugging problems with GDG files.

1B1. JCL conversion - Generation files

GDG JCL Conversion Examples

Mainframe GDG files are implemented via unix/linux Korn shell functions (exportgen0, exportgen1/2/..., exportgen-1/-2/...,& exportgenall). These functions are listed later beginning on page '5J0'. Here is a sample conversion (before & after) of GDG files:

1B3. JCL conversion - GDG files

GDG files isolated from JCL/scripts

Here are just the GDG files extracted from the JCL & the Korn shell scripts:

GDG files BEFORE conversion

 //GLMSOLD  DD DSN=GL.ACCOUNT.MASTER(0),DISP=OLD
 //GLMSNEW  DD DSN=GL.ACCOUNT.MASTER(+1),DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),
 //            UNIT=DISK,SPACE=(TRK,(50,50),RLSE),
 //            DCB=(MODEL.DSCB,LRECL=128,BLKSIZE=6118,RECFM=FBA)

GDG files AFTER conversion

 exportgen0 0 GLMSOLD data1/gl.account.master_     #<-- current generation
 exportgen1 +1 GLMSNEW data1/gl.account.master_    #<-- next generation

Notes re GDG file conversions

  1. In the mainframe JCL the '(0)' suffix on the DSN indicates the current generation, and the '(+1)' indicates the next generation.

  2. In the converted JCL/script, GDG files are identified with a trailing '_' underscore. Function 'exportgen0' is called to determine the current generation, and function 'exportgen1' to determine the next generation (for COBOL or utility programs).

  3. After the data files were converted from the mainframe to unix/linux, they are renamed as shown below.

  4. After conversion from the mainframe, we might store the 1st generation on unix/linux as gl.account.master_000001. After 4 updates, we would have 5 generations as shown below.
      data1/gl.account.master_000001     <-- 1st generation after conversion
      data1/gl.account.master_000002
      data1/gl.account.master_000003
      data1/gl.account.master_000004
      data1/gl.account.master_000005     <-- current generation after 4 updates

1B4. JCL conversion - GDG files

new GDG's written to jobtmp/...

 /home/userxx        <-- homedirs for testing, separate file system for production
 :-----testdata         <-- data dirs (defined as $RUNDATA in JCL/scripts)
 :-----proddata         <-- test or production, different for different users
 :     :------data1       - datafiles
 :     :      :-----gl.account.master_000001 <--input
 :     :      :-----gl.account.master_000002 <-- output from jobtmp/ at EOJ
 :     :------ctl         - GDG control file
 :     :------jobtmp      - temp dir for new generations, etc
 :     :      :-----$JOBID - separate subdirs by jobname
 :     :      :     :-----data1 - new GDGs here until successful EOJ
 :     :      :     :     :-----gl.account.master_000002
 :     :------...         - other subdirs (see JCLcnv1demo.htm#3B3)

The GDG file examples on the previous page would give you the impression that the new generation output would be written directly to the data1/... directory. The files are defined in JCL/scripts using exportgen0 & exportgen1 as follows:

 exportgen0 0 GLMSOLD data1/gl.account.master_      #<-- current generation
 exportgen1 +1 GLMSNEW data1/gl.account.master_     #<-- next generation

But exportgen1 will actually write the new generation to the jobtmp/... directory, until the job reaches Normal termination, where the jobend51 function will restore to the intended directory. The effect of exportgen1 is to generate the following actual 'export':


 export ACTLIST=$RUNDATA/jobtmp/$JOBID/data1/gl.account.acntlist_000002
 #=====================================================================

At successful End of Job, the jobset51 function generates the following move:


 mv $RUNDATA/jobtmp/$JOBID/data1/gl.account.acntlist_000002 $RUNDATA/data1/
 #=========================================================================

1B5. JCL conversion - GDG files

Generation# reset at _900000

When the generation# reaches _900000, all files in the filename group will automatically be resequenced from _000001. The end of job function 'jobset51' will call script 'gdgreset1' to do this for files exceeding _900000.

We also provide batch job 'gdgreset2' to resequence all files over _900000 back to _000001. Note that if you had a generation file that was updated once a day it would take 2500 years to exceed 900000.

We believe this GDG system is more reliable than the mainframe GDG system because it depends only on the generations currently in the directory & not some other file that could get corrupted.

1C1. JCL conversion - GDG files

sample GDG control file

      gl.account.acntlist_                     gdg=08
      gl.account.master_                       gdg=10
      gl.account.trans_                        gdg=10
      py.payroll.master_                       gdg=26
      py.time.cards_                           gdg=52
  1. During conversion, the GDG control file ($RUNLIBS/ctl/gdgctl51) is automatically created by extracting 'exportgen1's from all JCL/scripts.

  2. JCL conversion script 'jcl2ksh51A' calls 'jclgdgctl51' to extract the GDG files into a text file & 'gdgload51' is then called to load the text file into the Indexed file used by exportgen1 to determine the nummber of generations for each file.

  3. You will be prompted for the default number of generations per file.

  4. After initial creation, you can edit the text file to specify the number of generations desired for each file, and then re-run 'gdgload51' to re-load the Indexed file used by exportgen1.

  5. Note that the sub-directory (data1/) is not part of the control file (it is defined in the JCL/script). The JCL conversion initially assigns all files to the data1/ subdir, but you could subsequently assign data files anywhere.

  6. exportgen1 assumes that the lowest level of subdir (usually data1/) is in $RUNDATA (since JCL/scripts perform 'cd $RUNDATA' at the begining).

  7. But you can assign the higher levels of directories anywhere. You might setup your own $SYMBOLS if outside of the initial $RUNDATA directory

1C2. JCL conversion - GDG files

Initial creation of GDG control-file

The GDG control file is initially created at the end of the JCL conversion super script 'jcl2ksh51A'. It calls 'jclgdgctl51' to extract GDG files into a text file 'gdgctl51'. Script 'gdgload51' is then called to load the text file into the Indexed file (gdgctl51I.dat & gdgctl51I.idx) used by exportgen1 to determine the nummber of generations for each file.

Here is a brief review of the JCL conversion jobs ALREADY EXECUTED in JCLcnv1demo.htm#Part_3 or JCLcnv2real.htm#Part_1.


 #1a. login userxx, or as desired

 #1b. cdl --> $RUNLIBS (/home/userxx/testlibs, /p1/cnv/cnv1/testlibs

1C3. JCL conversion - GDG files

Edit no of generations desired

The JCL conversion defaults the number of generations as 07 for all files, unless you have transferred the LISTCAT reports from the mainframe & extracted the numbers into a control file as described at JCLcnv2real.htm#Part_3

Here is how you could assign the desired number to each file if the LISTCAT reports were not used in the conversion or you need to adjust the numbers.


 #1a. login userxx --> $HOME (/home/userxx/)

 #1b. cdd --> $RUNDATA (/home/userxx/testdata)

 #2. vi ctl/gdgctl51    <-- edit to modify no of generations as desired
     ===============
      gl.account.master_                       gdg=07
      gl.account.trans_                        gdg=15
      py.payroll.master_                       gdg=115

 #3. uvcopy gdgload51,fili1=ctl/gdgctl51,filo1=ctl/gdgctl51I
     =======================================================
     - load Indexed file to supply no of generations to exportgen1

1C4. JCL conversion - GDG files

update generations directly in Indexed file

If you have only a few desired updates to genration numbers, you could update the Indexed file directly with 'uvhd' (rather than updating the text file & reloading the Indexed file). Do not attempt to update the Indexed file with vi. 'uvhd' is safer since it will never change the record-size (possible with vi).

Note that when the text file is loaded into an Indexed file, you get 2 partitions (gdgctl51I.dat & gdgctl51I.idx).

Notes re updating Indexed file directly

  1. Do not attempt to update the Indexed file with 'vi', it would be very easy to corrupt the file. Inserting or deleting bytes would corrupt the file from that point onwards.

  2. It is safe to update with uvhd, because it will never change the record-size. Of course you must be careful not to change the key (1st 44 bytes filename).

  3. The above shows the GDG control file record for the gl.account.master_ after 1 execution of jgl200.ksh COBOL program cgl200.cbl. See jgl200.ksh listed on page '1B2'. Here are I/O file definitions GLMSOLD/GLMSNEW.
      exportgen0 0 GLMSOLD data1/gl.account.master_    #<-- current generation
      exportgen1 +1 GLMSNEW data1/gl.account.master_   #<-- next generation
  1. File I/O entries are inserted at byte 128 & prior entries are pushed down. This provides history of the last 30 I/O's to each GDG file.

1C7. JCL conversion - GDG files

Alternate location for GDG control file

The location of the GDG control file is determined by the value of $GDGCTL in the common_profile (called by .profile or .bash_profile). Here is line 75 of $APPSADM/env/common_profile_uv.


 if [[ -z "$GDGCTL" ]]; then export GDGCTL=$RUNDATA/ctl; fi #<-- set default
 #=========================================================

 # export GDGCTL=$APPSADM/ctl  #<-- uncomment to override $RUNDATA to $APPSADM
 #===========================

If you have multiple RUNDATA directories you might want to activate 'export GDGCTL=$APPSADM/ctl' to have only 1 GDG control file vs multiple.

If the GDG control file has already been created in $RUNDATA/ctl, you would now copy to $APPSADM as follows:


 cp $RUNDATA/ctl/gdgctl51* $APPSADM/ctl

2A3. JCL conversion - GDG files

Notes re jgl200.ksh above

  1. 'jobset51' sets up jobtmp/JGL100/GDG/ to hold any new GDG files until normal EOJ. See jobset51 listed on page '11B1'

  2. jobset51 performs 'cd $RUNDATA', so all files are defined in the script relative to $RUNDATA, which is /home/mvstest/testdata/... for the test/demos documented in JCLcnv1demo.htm.

  3. Most lines are omitted for step 1 SORT, except for the I/O files exportgen1 +1 SORTOUT data1/gl.account.trans_ <--Note3 =============================================

  4. Step1 SORT output file is input on step 2 COBOL exportgen1 +1 GLTRANS data1/gl.account.trans_ <--Note4 ============================================= Note that this step2 input is defined the same as the output on step1 - using 'exportgen1 +1' & not 'exportgen 0' as usual for input files

  5. Step2 exportgen0 defines the current generation for input. Assuming 3 generations existing (000001,000002,000003), the result would be:

    exportgen0 0 GLMSOLD data1/gl.account.master_000003                     <--Note5
    ===========================================================
  1. Step2 exportgen1 defines the next generation for output, effectively:

    exportgen1 +1 GLMSNEW data1/gl.account.master_000004                    <--Note6
    ===========================================================
    #exportgen1 GDGs written to jobtmp/$jobid2/GDG restored at Normal EOJ
Note
  • #comment following any exportgen1 reminds you that new GDG files are
  • 1st written to jobtmp/$JOBID/GDG/... & moved back to data1/... at EOJ
  • not moved if script abends, so you can rerun abends w/o removing files
  1. Return code from the COBOL program is tested & control goes to S9900 on failure(non-zero) & S9000 on success(zero).

  2. At S9000 (Normal EOJ), function 'jobend51' will move GDG files from jobtmp/GDG/ back to $RUNDATA/data1/.

  3. At S9900 (Abnormal EOJ), jobset51 is not called, so any new GDG files are not moved back to $RUNDATA/data1/. This means you can rerun the job without having to remove any new GDGs (so exportgen0 will get intended input).

  4. Note that for a multi-step JCL/script, you might use the restart facility to restart at the step that failed. On a restart jobset51 will prompt you & copy any new GDG files back to $RUNDATA/data1/.
Note
  • writing new GDGs to jobtmp controlled by option g0/g1 in ctl/jclunixop51
  • g1 (default) writes new GDGs to jobtmp/... for move back at Normal EOJ
  • g0 option writes new GDGs in original $RUNDATA/subdir
  • for g0, you could restart failed jobs at step after failure, else
    you must remove any new GDGs created up to failure before rerunning

Notes re job FAILURE

  1. data1/gl... files are unchanged (no new generations seen), - because new generations are written to jobtmp/GDG/... (only restored to data1/... if Normal Termination reached (S9000)

  2. After a failure, you can see the new GDG files ..._000005 are in jobtmp/jgl200/GDG/... - full path names, '/'s replaced by '@'s to allow GDG files in subdirs other than data1/...
      @home@mvstest@testdata@data1@gl.account.master_000005
      @home@mvstest@testdata@data1@gl.account.trans_000005
  1. The new GDGs in jobtmp/GDG/... are not moved back to $RUNDATA/data1/... because job ends Abnormally at S9900 (not moved back to data1/... as at S9000)

  2. After we correct the problem, we can simply rerun the job, no need to worry about removing new GDGs for incomplete jobs.

2D3. JCL conversion - GDG files

Notes

  1. Note the 'files exist in jobtmp/GDG subdirs (from prior Abterm)' warning & the prompts to move back (for restart) or not (rerun from begining).

  2. If the job only creates new generations & does not update indexed files, it is probably easier to rerun the job from the begining, since we know that any new generations have not been moved back to RUNDATA/data1/.

  3. But if job has updated indexed files (in RUNDATA/data1/), then you should restart from the step# in error (after fixing the problem of course). In this case reply 'y' to move the GDGs (from prior steps) back to RUNDATA/data1/.

  4. You might also prefer to restart at the error step if the job was very long, had very big files, created time stamped outputs, etc.

After an abnormal termination, you can look (with uvhd) at the gdgctl records for any files you are concerned about. Here is control record for the gdg file created by jgl200.ksh after the 3 runs illustrated on the previous pages. (run#1 OK, run#2 ABterm, run#3 OK).

2E2. JCL conversion - GDG files

notes re gdgctl51I after failure demo

    128 - run#3 output file '+000005' '+' flag for new generation
    192 - run#3 input  file ' 000004' ' ' blank flag existing generation
        - rerun after failure, jobtmp/GDG gen#s 000005 & 000004 cleared

    256 - run#2 output file '+000005' '+' flag for new generation
    320 - run#2 input  file ' 000004' ' ' blank flag existing generation
        - FAILURE, gen#s 000005 & 000004 left in jobtmp/jgl200/GDG

384 - run#1 output file '+000004' '+' flag for new generation 448 - run#1 input file ' 000003' ' ' blank flag existing generation

  1. You can see that run#3 (OK) created gen# 000005, which had been created by run#2 (ABterm), but was not moved back to $RUNDATA/data1/...

  2. You will not have to worry about this, if you can simply rerun the job from the begining. No new GDGs were created since we did not reach the S9000 jobend51 function that moves files back.

  3. Alternatively, you could use the 'restart' option to restart at the failing step, since you are given the option to move the files back to RUNDATA/data1/ at the begining of a restarted job. You will be prompted by the 'jobset51' function called at the begining of all JCL/scripts converted by the Vancouver Utilities JCL converter.

5A1. Vancouver Utilities GDG files - Advanced Features

Advanced Features Optional

The Vancouver Utility GDG system provides significant enhancements that go well beyond the original GDG implementation on the mainframe.

  1. You can specify a prior generation of a file to be defined by exportgen0 for the next run only, or until a specified expiry date/time is reached. This avoids having to modify the JCL/scripts. Note that you only have to modify one entry in the control file, whereas you could easily miss some of the possible multiple references in one or more JCL/scripts.

  2. You can specify range processing for a series of prior generations This is a powerful feature that 1 customer is already planning to make good use of. On the mainframe he had 30 tapes that had to be processed one at a time by a batch COBOL program & the operator simply mounted the tapes in turn.

  3. On the unix/linux system, all tape files are automatically converted to generation disc files, so to process the 30 tapes (now GDG disc files) separately, the customer might have to modify the JCL to hard-code the next desired generation# or he might specify via an operator keyin.

  4. With the enhanced GDG system, he edits the control file specifying the low to high range of generation#s to be processed. He can then run the batch job 30 times to process the 30 files (with no changes to JCL/scripts & no operator generation# keyins).

  5. This is possible because 'exportgen0' uses the current next generation#, which is incremented by the 'jobend51' function at normal EOJ. At the high end of the range, processing returns to normal, but an historical record is maintained in the indexed file database, making it easier to reactivate if the same cycle is repeated periodically.

  6. You can specify 'opt=c' (confirm) on control file entries to cause exportgen0 to prompt the operator to confirm the generation# selection, or to enter an alternative 6 digit generation#.

  7. The current system maintains a history of the last 30 accesses by exportgen0 and exportgen1. You can look at the control file (with uvhd) and for each of the last 30 accesses, you can see: date:time, generation# selected, lowest:highest generations on-file, jobname, step#,& program of last access.
Note
  • Most Users will not need the advanced features documented in Parts 5 & 6.

exportgen0 & gdgctl - Exception Processing

Normally exportgen0 defines the latest generation (file with highest 6 digit suffix). Consider the following data files & the 'exportgen0' example:

data1/gl.account.master_000001 data1/gl.account.master_000002 data1/gl.account.master_000003


 exportgen0 0 GLMSTR data1/gl.account.master_  <-- JCL/script coding to define the file
 ============================================        for the following COBOL program

 export GLMSTR=data1/gl.account.master_000003  <-- effective result
 ============================================

option to process prior generations

To process prior generations, you could temporarily modify the JCL/script, explicitly coding the desired 6 digit suffix. For example we could code:


 export GLMSTR=data1/gl.account.master_000002   <-- script modified with specific#
 ============================================
            - - - OR - - -

 exportfile GLMSTR data1/gl.account.master_000002 <-- same effect & displays filename
 ================================================
  1. If you hard-code the 6 digit seq#, you have to change 'exportgen0' to 'export' or 'exportfile' since exportgen0 is valid only for filenames with trailing '_'

  2. 'export' is the underlying command & 'exportfile' is a function which does issue the 'export' command, but in addition displays the filename for the console log.

    disadvantages of changing the JCL/scripts

  3. You have to remember to change them back after your reruns.

  4. Anytime you edit the JCL/scripts, there is the possibility of making mistakes.

  5. There may be multiple 'exportgen0's in multiple JCL/scripts to be modified for the reruns desired.

exportgen0 & gdgctl rerun facility

In 2007, a new version of exportgen0 was developed to provide a powerful rerun (prior generation access) capability.

This system uses the same control file ($RUNDATA/ctl/gdgctl51) that carries the desired number of generations per file (processed by exportgen1).

Consider the following few lines of the gdgctl file & the following generations of the account.master file:

      # gdgctl51 - GDG control file, by Owen Townsend, UV Software, Feb 2017
      #          - to demo specified next gen# & range processing
      #          - see www.uvsoftware.ca/JCLcnv4gdg.htm
      #
      gl.account.acntlist_     gdg=07
      gl.account.master_       gdg=15  <-- samples extracted from ctl/gdgctl51
      gl.account.trans_        gdg=20 opt=c
      data1/gl.account.master_000001
      data1/gl.account.master_000002
      data1/gl.account.master_000003         <-- last 5 generations of account.master

If you wanted to rerun a JCL/script using prior generation _000002, you could modify the control file as follows:

      gl.account.acntlist_     gdg=07
      gl.account.master_       gdg=15  next=000002   <-- gen# for rerun
      gl.account.trans_        gdg=20  opt=c
  1. It is safest to edit only the ctl/gdgctl51 text file, not the indexed file (ctl/gdgctl51I.dat) used by exportgen0 (& the jobend51 function).

  2. After modifying the text file, you must load it to the indexed file using 'uvcopy gdgload51'

  3. Or you could update the Indexed file directly using 'uvhd' (as shown later on page '5C2').

  4. Or if very careful, you could edit the Indexed file directly using the 'vi' editor since we do have the text file as backup & we can recreate the text file by rerunning jclgdgctl51.

  5. At the end of the 1st JCL/script with exportgen0 reference to account.master, the 'next=000002' is disabled by changing it to 'next=000000'

  6. You do have to remember to clear the original 'next=000002' from the text file version before you reload the indexed file for some other reason.

  7. It might be safer to 1st run the 'gdgunload51' job to convert the indexed file back to a text file for future edits & reload.

5B3. Vancouver Utilities GDG files - Advanced Features

Expiry Times

The system allows you to specify an expiry time when modifying the gdgctl file. For example:


     gl.account.master_  gdg=15  next=000002_yymmdd:HHMMSS
     ==========================================================

The exception processing (defining prior generations of the file) is disabled if the expiry date has been exceeded when the next JCL/script is run with exportgen0 references to the account.master.

Progressing thru a range of prior generations

The system also allows for successive runs to process thru a range of prior generations. For example:


     gl.account.trans_ gdg=20 opt=c next=000001(000001:000012)
     ===============================================================

This would allow you to load the transaction files for all 12 months, before you do any processing, then process the 12 months on successive runs. (with no changes to JCL/scripts or control file required).

After the 12th run the control file entry would be updated by the jobend51 function executed at Normal EOJ, to:


     gl.account.trans_ gdg=20 opt=c next=000000(000001:000012)
     ===============================================================

IE, the next gen# is set to '000000' to indicate the processing is completed but not lose a record of the manual edits. The next reference by exportgen0 for this file would define the then highest generation# (which might still be '000012').

You could combine expiry times with progression, but it is not necessary, since the progression automatically ends the exception processing when the upper limit is reached. Expiry dates are ignored if a low < high range is specified, but the format would be:


     gl.account.trans_ gdg=20 opt=c next=000001(000001:000012)yymmdd:HHMMSS
     ============================================================================
Note
  • actually all next=... entries must be in the full format shown above
  • if you do not need progression, specify low & high same as next gen#
  • if you do not need expiry date, specify as 000000:000000

Retaining History in gdgctl

A simplified example of a 1 time access to a prior generation is shown below, followed by the actual format used, which retains some history of your prior generation overrides in the gdgctl file.


     gl.account.master_ gdg=15 next=000002  <-- gen# for next access (1 time)
     ==========================================

     gl.account.master_ gdg=15 next=000000  <-- reset to this at Normal EOJ
     ==========================================

     gl.account.master_ gdg=15 next=000002(000002:000002)yymmdd:HHMMSS <-- optional
     ======================================================================

     gl.account.master_ gdg=15 next=000000(000002:000002)yymmdd:HHMMSS <-- reset
     ==============================************============================

gdgctl illustrating prior gen# over-rides

 gl.account.acntlist_ gdg=07
 gl.account.master_   gdg=15 next=000002(000002:000002)000000:000000 <--note1
 gl.account.trans_    gdg=20 next=000002(000002:000002)070529:235959 <--note2
 py.payroll.master_   gdg=30 op=c                                    <--note3
 py.time.cards_       gdg=52 next=000001(000001:000012)000000:000000 <--note4
 py.time.cards.div2_  gdg=52 next=000001(000001:000012)070529:235959 <--note5
  1. 'next=000002' will be reset to 'next=000000' (disabling over-ride) at the end of the 1st JCL/script that references the file with exportgen0.

  2. Specify an 'expiry date' if you want the over-ride to persist for multiple runs until some specified date/time.

  3. Specify 'opt=c' if you want an operator prompt to confirm gen# selection or enter an alternative generation#

  4. The generation# will be incremented each time you run the JCL/script referencing the file. After the 12th run it will be set to 'next=000000(000001:000012)' disabling the over-ride, but leaving some history, in case you wanted to reactivate in future.

5a. You could also specify a non-zero expiry date/time, but not necessary since the override is automatically disabled at the high end of the range.

5b. Expiry dates are ignored for ranges (when low & high different), but you could code expiry dates with ranges for an historical record.

5C2. using 'uvhd' to display GDG Indexed control-file

notes re using uvhd to display Indexed file

  1. Please see the uvhd display on the previous page. We are showing records 2&3 after loading the indexed file with ctl/gdgctl51. Each 2048 byte record is displayed on 32 lines (of 64 bytes). Here are 1st 2 lines for records 2 & 3.
        2048 gl.account.master_                                 gdg=15 opt=c
          64 next=000002(000002:000002)171231:235959 jgl220    170206:092840
                 - - - 30 lines omitted - - -
        4096 gl.account.trans_                                  gdg=15 opt=c
          64 next=000004(000001:000012)000000:000000 jgl220
                 - - - 30 lines omitted - - -
  1. Only the 1st 2 lines have items that might be updated with uvhd or vi. You might want to modify the number of generations (gdg=15 or gdg=20 above). You might want to add option 'opt=c' to prompt operator to confirm gen# (as shown for the data1/gl.account.trans file).

  2. Some users may have a reason to code the 'next=...' options shown above 'next=000002...' for data1/gl.account.master overrides the normal selection of the highest generation until the expiry date is reached.

  3. 'next=000001(000001:000012)...' on data1/gl.account/trans, will increment the generation# thru a range of previously stored generations from low to high. 'exportgen0' will use the next=... value & 'jobend51/gdgupok1' will increment the generation# at successful EOJ. We will demonstrate later using jgl220.ksh in Part_6.

  4. Note that the last 2 bytes of each record show as '>.'. The '>' marks the end of the record & allows possible updating with the editor. The '.' is actually x'0A' which is the indexed file record status byte for a good record, whereas x'00' would indicate a deleted record. It shows as a '.' because uvhd shows unprintable characters as '.'.

  5. You can see the hex characters by adding option 'h2' to force display in 'vertical hexadecimal', which is automatic if the record contains any non-character bytes. The above was in character because the only non-char was the LineFeed x'0A' which is expected at the end of text records.

  6. On page '5C4' we will show how to use 'vi' to update the Indexed file - if you are very careful.

updating gdgctl Indexed file with uvhd

On this page we will show you only the 'uvhd' commands to update the Indexed file. Please see the records displayed on page '5C1'. The records already have the updates shown below because we loaded the file from ctl/gdgctl51 which was already updated with 'vi' before loading the indexed file (the easier way to make extensive updates).


 #1. login mvstest --> /home/mvstest

 #2. cdd  (alias cdd='cd $RUNDATA') --> /home/mvstest/testdata
     ===

 #3. uvhd ctl/gdgctl51I.dat r2048uh1  <-- start uvhd with options
     ===============================      r2048=recsize, u=update
                                          h1=chars only (omit hex zones/digits)
      <--- see uvhd record display on prior page
         - uvhd displays the 1st record & prompts for commands
         - you can reply as shown below:

 #3a. -->    <-- null entry to advance to record #2

 #3b. --> u 64(38),'next=000002(000002:000002)000000:000000'
          ==================================================

easier alternative

Actually the gdgload51 utility inserts zero-filled inactive entries, so you only have to update the 6 digit next gen# as follows:


 #3b. --> u 69(6),'000002'
          ================

 #3c. --> q   <-- quit

Notes

  1. If you use uvhd, you must be sure not to modify the keys (1st 50 bytes)

  2. using uvhd is more awkward than an editor, but much safer. uvhd will never change the record size which would corrupt the remainder of the file, since the index partition depends upon all data record being same size. Adding or deleting bytes inadvertently is very easy to do with vi.

  3. Updating the Indexed file directly with 'vi' is dangerous, but it is fast & convenient, and we will show you how on the next page.

  4. After updating with 'vi' you should always run the 'dcheck' utility to ensure the validity of the Indexed file.

notes re display above

To the 'vi' editor the gdgctl51I.dat records are considered very long lines, since there is only 1 Linefeed at the end of the 2048 byte records. They appear as 26 lines on the screen, since screen lines wrap at 80 bytes. If we printed the original record you would see only the 1st 90 bytes (page-width).

To simulate the screen appearance I ran a uvcopy job 'splitrec1' which inserts a Line-Feed every 80 bytes. I 1st used vi to write 1 record to tmp/gdgctl1.


 uvcopy splitrec1,fili1=tmp/gdgctl1,filo1=tmp/gdgctl2

                    ------ omitting 23 lines ------
  1. Shown above is the 3rd record of gdgctl51I after loading from gdgctl51. Each 2048 byte record requires 26 lines. The filename appears 1st, in this example 'data1/gl.account.trans. The only items you might need to update are on the 1st 2 lines (+ 6 chars of the 3rd line). The rest is history.

  2. 'gdg=20' is the number of generations to be maintained. 'opt=c' is the option for operator confirmation of gen# selection. 'next=...' is the option to process a series of existing prior generations.

  3. Note 'next=000005(000001:000012)...'. This 'vi' snapshot was captured 4 runs after setting next=000001(000001:000012)...'

  4. If you are very careful you might be able to update with vi. Use only the 'R'eplace command of vi, not insert or delete. Note that 'gdgload51' inserts a '>' at col 2047 to indicate the end of the record. The '>' is followed by '.' which is actually x'0A', valid record status for Indexed file records.

  5. When you rewrite the file, check that the file-size is a multiple of the record-size (256). Or use control-G in the editor to check before writing.

  6. Updating the indexed file is only justified if you always run the 'dcheck' utility to validate & if you maintain the text file version.

  7. If you do much updating with vi, you could periodically run 'gdgunload51' to convert the Indexed file back to the text file backup.

  8. If need be you can recreate the text file by running jclgdgctl51 (see '1C2').

6A1. GDG Advanced Features - Demonstration

prior GDG & Range processing

Here we will show you how you might use one of the extra features of the Vancouver Utility GDG system to process a series of GDG files already stored in the directory before processing begins.

We can update the gdgctl file to specify the from:to series of generations to be processed 1 a t a time when processing begins. This feature saves having to modify any JCL or copy any files between the multiple runs.

For example, suppose we have already stored 12 months of gl transactions & we now wish to process all 12 successively without having to modify any JCL or copy files.

The job that stores the 12 files would use exportgen1 & assuming that there were no existing files in the data1/ subdir, the result would be as follows:

updating gdgctl to process a series of GDG files

Here is the ctl/gdgctl51 entry for gl.account.trans_ expected as we process a series of 12 generations in separate runs of jgl220.ksh.


 gl.account.trans_
 =================

 gdg=15 next=000000(000000:000000)  <-- default next=000000
 =================================      selects highest gen# in directory

 gdg=15 next=000001(000001:000012)  <-- after gdgctl edit for next=...
 =================================    - before any runs

 gdg=15 next=000002(000001:000012)  <-- after 1st run
 =================================

 gdg=15 next=000003(000001:000012)  <-- after 2nd run
 =================================

 gdg=15 next=000012(000001:000012)  <-- after 11th run
 =================================

 gdg=15 next=000000(000001:000012)  <-- after 12th run
 =================================    - next gen# reset to next=000000
  1. After the 12th run, the next gen# is set to '000000' which disables the feature, but retains a history/comment, which can easily be activated for the next requirement.

  2. Any runs after next is reset to 000000 will pick up the highest gen# in the directory as normal, which may still be the 12th month.

  2. The trans file selected was data1/gl.account.trans_000001, because the gdgctl file had next=000001(000001:000012)... & this was the 1st run.

  3. After the 1st run, the trans entry in ctl/gdgctl51I.dat would be: next=000002(000001:000012)...

  4. Note that 'opt=c' coded on the control file entry for data1/gl.account.trans_ causes the following operator prompt to confirm 'y' or enter an alternative 6 digit generation#.

observations after 2nd run

  1. The master file selected was data1/gl.account.master_000002, because the gdgctl file had next=000002... overriding the last generation of _000003. The next=000002 was not reset because the expiration date was 171231.

  2. The trans file selected was data1/gl.account.trans_000002, because the gdgctl file had next=000002(000001:000012)... (next= incremented at end 1st run).

  3. After the 2nd run, the trans entry in ctl/gdgctl51I.dat will be: next=000003(000001:000012)...

  4. There are 12 generations of the gl.account.trans_ file, but we will demo only the 1st 3 runs

Notes re data1/gl.account.master_

  1. Note the history of the 3 runs of jgl220.ksh. The latest is inserted at the top, pushing the previous history entries down.

  2. data1/gl.account.master_ has been processed by exportgen0 & exportgen1 on each of 3 runs.

  3. exportgen0 (for gl.account.master_) always selected gen# 000002 because of the 'next=000002...' override. Forcing a specific generation# for the master file thru multiple updates might not be practical, but was done here to demo the facility. The primary demo was to demo processing multiple generations of the gl.account.trans_ file (range processing).

  4. exportgen1 created new generations from 01+000004 (at the bottom) to 01+000006 (at the top).

    Notes re data1/gl.account.trans_

  5. data1/gl.account.trans_ has been processed only by exportgen0 on each of 4 runs.

  6. The 1st 3 runs selected generations 000001, 000002, 000003 due to the 'next=......(000001:000012)...' override.

  7. After 12 runs, next will be reset to 'next=000000(000001:000012)' 'next=000000' means future runs will select highest generation found. '(000001:000012)' is retained but inactive in case you want to reactivate by resetting 'next=000000' to 'next=000001' or higher.

    GDG control file history updates optional

As of June 2012, GDG control file history updates is optional depending on environmental variable GDGCTLUPDT, default GDGCTLUPDT=YES (in common_profile). Inhibiting history updates might speed up on very busy system and reduce possibility of file locks & corruption.

Of course GDGCTLUPDT=YES is required to use the advanced features documented on the pages above, and could be useful in debugging problems with GDG files.

part_7 VU GDG files - Caveats

Part 7 - Contents

Here are some situations that may occur at some VSE sites, that require manual editing to enable the Vancouver Utility GDG system to function as intended.


7A1. Introduction.

7B1. $SYMBOLS in data file names in the JCL/scripts
- you must replace with actual values in ctl/gdgctl51
- easy to do using vi mass change commands (see examples given)

7C1. You must modify any JCL/scripts that have DDNAME assignments
- if the logical filename on the exportgen0/1 function is assigned
  to an alternate logical filename via an exportfile (vs exportgen)
- an unusual situation that occurred at a VSE site

7D1. Should be no changes required to jobs that write new GDGs & readback.
But changes were required for a site using the option to convert all
tape files to GDG files because it depended on an I/O indicator to
generate exportgen0/exportgen1 (vs original mainframe coding 0/+1)

7B1. special procedures for VU GDG system required at some sites

replace $SYMBOLS in gdgctl file

Any $SYMBOLS in the GDG control file ($RUNLIBS/ctl/gdgctl51) need to be replaced by the actual values.

$SYMBOLS in the filenames given to exportgen0/exportgen1 are replaced by the Korn shell, but any $SYMBOLS in filenames extracted by jclgdgctl51 & loaded into the gdgctl file would remain as is.

We need to replace them with actual values so exportgen0/exportgen1 can match to the control file.

sample filenames extracted from JCL/scripts

 $MSTR/e2121653.mtaxe.piscines_           gdg=15
 $MSTR/e2121656.itaxe.facturat_           gdg=15
 $TAPE/ev.f01.28401a19.annexe_            gdg=15
 $TAPE/ev.f01.e211211.diftax_             gdg=15
 $TAPE2/tu.f01.e211801.adrpos_            gdg=15
 $TAPE2/tu.f01.e212-no.eauctr_            gdg=15

after replacing $SYMBOLS with values

 data1/e2121653.mtaxe.piscines_           gdg=15
 data1/e2121656.itaxe.facturat_           gdg=15
 tape/ev.f01.28401a19.annexe_            gdg=15
 tape/ev.f01.e211211.diftax_             gdg=15
 tape2/tu.f01.e211801.adrpos_            gdg=15
 tape2/tu.f01.e212-no.eauctr_            gdg=15

Note that the replacements are very easy to do using vi mass change commands. This editing would be in addition to the procedures shown earlier on page '1C3', so we will extend those operating instruction numbers.

correction for files reassigned

Here is a situation I noticed in a VSE conversion that currently requires manual correction.

VSE sites often defined most files up front & sometimes used SORT OPTION FILNM &/or TDYNASN to reassign the logical name to an alternate used for the SORT or a COBOL program.

This is a problem because the JCL converter assumes that the file is a non-GDG & uses 'exportfile' for the reassignment. This would cause 'file not found' because exportfile would assign the file as is (with trailing underscore). We need 'exportgen0/1' to select the latest or next GDG file with 6 digit sequence#. To illustrate the problem I have extracted a few lines from a typical VSE JCL.

 ## EXEC SORT
 #3----------------------------------------------------------------------
 uxsort "fili1=$SORTIN1,typ=RSF,rcs=354,filo1=$SORTOUT,keys=(17,6,b,a)"
 #4----------------------------------------------------------------------
Note
  • JCL converter assumes that SORTIN1 is a non-GDG file (uses exportfile)
  • you must change '$SORTIN1' to '$E212990' as shown on the uxsort below:
  • since $E212990 is the 'exportgen0' definition
  • whereas the $SORTIN1 'exportfile' definition would be undefined

 #3----------------------------------------------------------------------
 uxsort "fili1=$E212990,typ=RSF,rcs=354,filo1=$SORTOUT,keys=(17,6,b,a)"
 #4----------------------------------------------------------------------

TDYNASN is a similar situation

 ## EXEC TDYNASN
      ... TDYNASN step reassigned logical filename
 # ASSGN E212990,SYS014,INPUT
 exportfile SYS014 $E212990

Write new generation & Readback in same job

There should be no manual changes required to jobs that write new generations of GDG files & read back on a later step within the same job, because the new GDG is written into $JTMP (jobtmp/subdir). 'exportgen1' determines the next generation by examining the files in the original $RUNDATA/subdir & does not get confused by the new generation in the $JTMP/GDG/...

The mainframe JCL would use the (+1) suffix on the new generation creation DSN, and also on the DSN that reads the file back, because the programmer knew that the GDG generation# was not updated until successful EOJ.

This situation is illustrated by demo JCL jcl0/JGL210.jcl, and here are the relevant lines extracted from the mainframe JCL & from the converted script (jcl3/jgl210.ksh):

JCL to demo Write GDG & Readback in 1 job

The 'Note1' line above writes a new generation for the sorted file. The 'Note2' line above reads the new GDG back into the COBOL program. They were both codes with the '(+1)' suffix on the DSN's, and are now both coded on the 'exportgen1' function in the Korn shell script.

problem converting tape files to GDG's

We noticed a problem when converting VSE JCL's with tape files to GDG's.

The VSE JCL carried a comment indication INPUT or OUTPUT, and we added an option to the JCL converter to use the I/O indicator to generate 'exportgen1' for OUTPUT & 'exportgen0' for INPUT. We also coded the tape files in a 'tape/...' subdir. Using the example on the previous page the write & read back file definitions might be:

exportgen1 +1 SORTOUT $JTMP/tape/account.trans_ #Note1 (write)

 exportgen0 0 GLTRANS tape/account.trans_     #Note2 (readback on following step)

correction method #1 (OK)

exportgen1 +1 SORTOUT $JTMP/tape/account.trans_ #Note1 (write)

exportgen1 0 GLTRANS $JTMP/tape/account.trans_ #2 (readback on following step)

Correction method #1 is similar to the example on the previous page, resulting for the fact that the mainframe programmer would have coded both files with suffix '(+1)'.

correction method #2 (NOK)

exportgen1 +1 SORTOUT $JTMP/tape/account.trans_ #Note1 (write)

exportgen0 0 GLTRANS $JTMP/tape/account.trans_ #2 (readback on following step)

Correction method #2 is to leave the function as 'exportgen0' & simply add the '$JTMP/' prefix onto the file.

Note that the '$JTMP/' directory is honoured by exportgen0, but is ignored by exportgen1 when determining the latest generation within a directory. Function 'exportgen1' will 1st remove any '$JTMP/' prefix before it determines the latest generation, but 'exportgen0' will not.

Note
  • Do NOT use correction method#2. It will work, but will generate ERRORS
  • when the system tries to update the GDG history in the control file
