The following commands are supplied with the MIMIX Model Switch Framework.

  • Create Switch Framework (CRTSWTFWK) - This command creates the switch framework control area which controls switching scenarios between two systems. The initial status of the control area is set to PCMP which indicates that a switch to the backup system can be performed.

    You can run more than one switch framework process at a time. For example, you could have two production systems switch to the same backup system. To run multiple switch processes enter the CRTSWTFWK command and specify a unique library for each system for the Exit program library parameter.

    When you issue the Create Switch Framework (CRTSWTFWK) command it also creates a data area and a group monitor. The data area and group monitor will have the same name as the switch framework. For more information about group monitors refer to Group monitors (*GROUP) and Changing monitors.

  • Change Switch Framework(CHGSWTFWK) - This command changes the switch framework control area which controls switching scenarios between two systems.

  • Check Switch Framework(CHKSWTFWK) - This command checks the switch framework control information and reports the status of the switching operation. When you enter this command the system issues a message describing the current state of the switch operation. For more information see MIMIX Model Switch Framework status codes.

  • Delete Switch Framework (DLTSWTFWK) - This command deletes the switch framework control area.

  • Retrieve Switch Framework (RTVSWTFWK) - This command is used in a CL program to retrieve the current status of the switch framework. This command returns the same status indicators as the CHKSWTFWK command. For more information see MIMIX Model Switch Framework status codes.

  • Run Switch Framework (RUNSWTFWK) - This command designates the system that you want to use as the source system and the switch operation that you want performed. You should run this command once for each of the phases of a switch.

This command can only be run from the system where the MIMIX Model Switch Framework exists. By design, this is the original backup system.
