Command Qualifiers Defaults None. None.
SYSLCK privilege is required to in order to use this utility.
The CACHE/CLOSE utility is used to force, cluster-wide, all detached PMDF processes to close any open I/O channels that they have to the queue cache database. This is generally done for two reasons: to close all channels to the file so that it can be modified, and to force detached processes to re-open the queue cache database file so as to begin using any new version of that database.
Sites using the TCP/IP channel, PMDF-LAN Lotus Notes channels, PMDF-XGS, Jnet (BN_SLAVE), the PMDF-DIRSYNC Lotus Notes directory agent, or FAX receive processes will have detached PMDF processes which may need to close channels to the database.1
After a new queue cache database is built with CACHE/REBUILD, a CACHE/CLOSE command should be issued to force any detached processes to begin using the new database:
$ PMDF CACHE/REBUILD $ PMDF CACHE/CLOSE $ ! ...wait a minute or two... $ PMDF CACHE/SYNCH

processes which use the PMDF API routine
