Usage Notes

The Tell About Delay field specifies whether or not the application program is to be informed of a computer crash/restart while waiting for the restart to complete.
  • If a restart is detected during logoff processing, CLI reconnects the session and resubmits the logoff request.
  • If a restart occurs during a logoff request, CLI automatically resubmits the request.
    FastLoad and BTEQ applications cannot use the CAP library because it overrides FastLoad and BTEQ settings. Thus, the DBCAREA must be changed dynamically to effect a change to Tell About Crash.
