With the Compare Attributes commands (CMPFILA, CMPOBJA, CMPIFSA, and CMPDLOA), you have significant flexibility in selecting objects for comparison, the attributes to be compared, and the format in which the resulting report is created.

Each command generates a candidate list of objects on both systems and can detect objects missing from either system. For each object compared, the command checks for the existence of the object on the source and target systems and then compares the attributes specified on the command. The results from the comparisons performed are placed in a report.

Each command offers several unique features as well.

  • CMPFILA provides significant capability to audit file-based attributes such as triggers, constraints, ownership, authority, database relationships, and the like. Although the CMPFILA command does not specifically compare the data within the database file, it does check attributes such as record counts, deleted records, and others that check the size of data within a file. Comparing these attributes provides you with assurance that files are most likely synchronized.

  • The CMPOBJA command supports many attributes important to other library-based objects, including extended attributes. Extended attributes are attributes unique to given objects, such as auto-start job entries for subsystems.

  • The CMPIFSA and CMPDLOA commands provide enhanced audit capability for IFS objects and DLOs, respectively.
