The sections that follow contain detailed descriptions of each TDP operator command, listed alphabetically. Each command description includes:
  • A brief explanation of the command function
  • The command syntax
  • Usage notes that describe how the command operates and how it can be used
  • An example of a command entry
  • The normal completion message to expect
  • For display commands, an example result is also included

The following table lists TDP operator commands and summarizes their functions.

Command Function
ADD CELLS/XMSCELLS Adds cells of main memory or cross memory PC cells to a TDP.
ATTACH CP Allocates a specified channel device from the operating system.
ATTACH IFP (Deprecated by ATTACH CP) Deprecated: convert to ATTACH CP.
ATTACH NP Creates a representation of an NP but performs no necessary function. Supported only for consistency with CPs.
COMMIT For Two-phase commit sessions, commits the changes in the specified in-doubt sessions.
CONFIG Establishes controls and default values for TDP information.
DETACH CP Deallocates a specified channel device from the operating system.
DETACH IFP (Deprecated by the DETACH CP command) Deprecated: convert to DETACH CP.
DETACH NP Deletes the representation of an NP from TDP.
DISABLE IRF Logs off TDP internal sessions that are used for Two-phase commit in-doubt resolution.
DISABLE LGUX Causes TDP to stop passing logon requests to the User Logon Exit Interface (TDPLGUX).

DISABLE SESSION DETAIL Stops TDP from producing messages that indicate the elapsed time spent in the application and on the database when a session ends.
DISABLE SESSION RESERVE Causes TDP to release the reserved session capacity so that customer applications can use the maximum session capacity supported by the database.
DISABLE SESSION STATUS Stops TDP from producing messages when a session starts or stops.
DISABLE SMF Prevents SMF information from being recorded.

In the VOS3 environment, applies to SMS records.

DISABLE TDPSTATS Causes TDP to stop collecting performance data.

DISABLE TIME Prevents TDP from sending time to the database.
DISABLE TMON Disables TDP calls to the User Transaction Collection Exit (TDPUTCE), which is enabled when TDP starts.
DISABLE TRAP Stops a TDP diagnostic trap.
DISABLE UAX Causes TDP to stop accepting requests from the user address space exit.
DISABLE USEC Causes TDP to stop passing security/ logon violations information to the User Security Interface (TDPUSEC), which is enabled when TDP starts.
DISPLAY CCU (Deprecated by the DISPLAY CONFIG CP DETAIL command) Deprecated: convert to DISPLAY CONFIG CP.
DISPLAY CELLS Displays all availability and usage information generated by the TDP internal memory management system.
DISPLAY CHECKSUM (Deprecated by the DISPLAY CONFIG CP DETAIL command) Deprecated: convert to DISPLAY CONFIG CP DETAIL.
DISPLAY CONFIG Display the controls and default values set by the CONFIG command.
DISPLAY CP Displays the status of one or more channel processors (CPs).

DISPLAY LIMIT (Deprecated by the DISPLAY CONFIG XP DETAIL command) Deprecated: convert to DISPLAY CONFIG XP DETAIL.
DISPLAY MODULE Displays information about a TDP module.

DISPLAY POOL Lists information and statistics about session pools.
DISPLAY QUEUES Displays the status of internal work queues for a TDP.
DISPLAY SERVER Displays attributes of the database with which TDP is communicating.
DISPLAY SESSIONS Displays the status of sessions that are communicating with the database through TDP.
DISPLAY SMF Displays the status of SMF recording.

In the VOS3 environment, applies to SMS records.

DISPLAY SP Displays the status of one or more session processors (SPs).
DISPLAY STORAGE Displays information about the use of virtual storage by TDP.
DISPLAY TDP Displays the status of TDP.
DISPLAY TDPSTATS Displays the status (enabled or disabled) of TDPSTATS.
DISPLAY TRACK Display which internal diagnostic information is being collected and its disposition.
ENABLE IRF Logs on TDP internal sessions that are used for Two-phase commit in-doubt resolution.
ENABLE LGUX Causes TDP to begin passing logon requests to TDP User Logon Exit Interface (TDPLGUX).
ENABLE LOGONS Causes TDP to begin accepting logon requests from applications. Logons are not enabled when TDP starts.
ENABLE NPCOMM Causes TDP to produce messages related to the reasons, the loss, and the resumption of communication for an NP.
ENABLE POOL Enables logons to one or more pools.
ENABLE POOL DETAIL Enables POOL DETAIL.
ENABLE POOL STATUS Enables POOL STATUS.
ENABLE SECLOGON Enables the security logon interface to the System Authorization Facility (SAF) on z/OS Client systems.
ENABLE SESSION DETAIL Causes TDP to produce messages that indicate the elapsed time spent in the application and on the database when a session ends.
ENABLE SESSION RESERVE Causes TDP to reserve session capacity for recovery processing in the event of the failure of an SP, thus reducing the maximum number of sessions that it can control during its current run.
ENABLE SESSION STATUS Causes TDP to produce messages when a session starts or stops.
ENABLE SMF Causes SMF information to be recorded.

In the VOS3 environment, applies to SMS records.
