TAA Tools

The Convert  Output  Queue Description  command creates  an outfile  of
the  descriptive  information from  one  or more  output  queues.   The
outfile  will  contain  such  information  as  the  number  of  writers
assigned, the  number  of  spooled  files that  exist,  the  connection
type,  etc.   The outfile  can then  be read  by a  user program  for a
variety of needs.

The model file is TAASPNCP with a format name of OUTQDR.

A typical command would be:

             CVTOUTQD    OUTQ(xxx/*ALL) OUTLIB(QTEMP)

One  record for each output queue in  the named library would be output
to the OUTQDP file in QTEMP.

*USE authority is required to the output queue.

CVTOUTQD escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   OUTQ          The  qualified  name  of   the  output  queue  to   be
                 converted.   A single  output queue,  a generic  name,
                 or  the  special  value  *ALL  may  be entered.    The
                 library value defaults to  *LIBL.  *USRLIBL,  *CURLIB,
                 *ALL, or *ALLUSR may also be used.

   OUTLIB        The library  where the  OUTQDP file  will be  written.
                 *LIBL  is the  default  and may  be used  if  the file
                 already  exists on the  library list.   The model file
                 is TAASPNCP with a format name of OUTQDR.

   OUTMBR        The member of the  OUTQDP file to be written to.   The
                 default is OUTQDP.

   REPLACE       A *YES/*NO  parameter for whether to  replace the data
                 if  the file  member exists.   *YES is  the default to
                 replace the data.

                 *NO may be entered to add to existing data.
