DBEngine Commands

AX COMMITS

Displays the same commit-related statistics that would appear on the printed statistics report. The number after the "#" is the count of samples of that category. The numbers at the end of the displayed line are the minimum, maximum, and average.

AX CLOSE

If DBEngine has the database open during tracking this command will close it. This allows other programs exclusive use of the database.

AX DEBUG

Displays whether debug tracing is enabled. AX DEBUG ON enables debugging. AX DEBUG OFF disables it. The AX DEBUG command is available only when using the debug version of DBEngine.

AX HELP

Syntax: mixnumber AX HELP

where mixnumber is the mix number of DBEngine or an Extract Worker. Use this command to display the available AX commands for that component.

AX QUIT

Syntax: mixnumber AX QUIT

where mixnumber is the mix number of DBEngine.

This command terminates a DBRead and DBWait process. It causes the DBReadTranGroup entry point to exit at the next quiet point. Other copies of the DBEngine library, however, are still available for other DATABridge Accessories. If DBReadTranGroup is waiting for more audit to become available, the QUIT command will cause it to quit waiting immediately.

AX SIZES

Displays the same size-related statistics that would appear on the printed statistics report. The number after the "#" is the count of samples of that category. The numbers at the end of the displayed line.

AX STATUS

To display status information about DBEngine and Extract Workers, enter the following:

mixnumber AX STATUS

where mixnumber is the mix number of the DBEngine library stack. Once you enter this AX STATUS command, enter SMSG from MARC or MSG from the ODT.

The DBEngine responses appear in the system messages.
