Create a cluster-wide, on-disk database of association and channel counters.
Command Qualifiers Defaults None. None.
Requires sufficient privileges to create a file in the
PMDF_TABLE:directory; if a in-memory section must also be created, SYSGBL and PRMGBL privileges are required.
A new, cluster-wide database of channel counters is created with the
PMDF COUNTERS/CRDBcommand. The new database will have all counters zeroed except for the counts of stored messages, recipients, and message volumes for each channel. Those counts will be determined by the entries in the PMDF queue cache database. In addition, if an in-memory section for association and channel counters on this node does not already exist, it will be created as well.
Once an on-disk database exists, its values may be updated from the node-specific, in-memory sections by using the
Note that since some initial database values will be set based on entries in the PMDF queue cache database, you may want to issue a
command before issuing the
$ PMDF CACHE/SYNCHRONIZE
PMDF COUNTERS/CRDBcommand, to ensure that the queue cache database values are themselves current.
