PSJRN01 journal receivers in PSCOMMON getting very large and numerous, too fast.


In order to control the growing RRM Journal receivers, turn off excessive logging.  This type of journaling can be turned back on selectively depending on reporting needs or desire to play back previous transactions by editing individual exit points.

To end all logging for all exit points from a command line:  

  1. Type PSMENU and press Enter.

  2. Type 2 (PSSECURE) and press Enter.

  3. Type 3 (Remote Request Management) and press Enter.

  4. Type 8 (Work with Exit Points) and press Enter.

  5. Press F7 (Update All).
  6. Change the value to *NO for the following fields:

    Log Incoming Transactions
    Log Parsed Trans - Pass
    Log Parsed Trans - Fail
    Log Parsed Object - Pass
    Log Parsed Object - Fail

  7. Press Enter to update.

  8. To evaluate existing receivers associated with the journal, complete the following steps from a command line:
    1. Type WRKJRNA and press F4.
    2. Type PSJRN01 and press Tab.  
    3. Type PSCOMMON and press Enter.
    4. Press F15 and display the journal receivers.
    5. Delete some or all of the receivers in order to regain DASD.

Note: The most recently unattached receiver can return an error if selected to delete, as it may not been saved. Select I to ignore the error message and delete the most current unattached receiver, if desired. To delete the attached receiver, a new one must first be created using the CHGJRN command.
