Monitors 

MIMIX uses monitors for supporting functions. These monitors may be shipped with the product or created when needed. MIMIX also supports user-created monitors. All monitors run under the MIMIXOWN user profile which is shipped with special authority to all objects (*ALLOBJ).

*ALLOBJ authority is needed so that each monitor has access to all objects that it watches, such as journals and message queues. *ALLOBJ is also needed for access to the job scheduler and to any interface exit programs, condition programs, and event programs called by the monitor.

If you create a monitor, the user profile creating that monitor must have authority to the interface exit program, condition program, or event program that is defined to the monitor.

 Model switch framework programs for switching 

In environments configured with data groups only, customized programs for switching the direction of replication through an implementation of MIMIX Model Switch Framework or MIMIX Switch Assistant run under the MIMIXOWN user profile.

 For more information about security considerations with the MIMIXOWN user profile, refer to the following topics in the License Manager for IBM i Products book:
