Synchronize each of the node-specific, in-memory caches of channel counters with the cluster-wide database.
Command Qualifiers Defaults None. None.
Normally, just WORLD privilege is required to use this utility. However, if the node-specific, in-memory section must be created, then SYSGBL and PRMGBL are required; or if the cluster-wide, on-disk database must be created, then privileges sufficient to create a file in the
PMDF_TABLE:directory are required.
To synchronize each of the node-specific, in-memory caches of channel counters with the cluster-wide database, issue a
PMDF COUNTERS/SYNCHRONIZEcommand. The command will not return control back to you until all the caches have been synchronized. The
PMDF COUNTERS/SYNCHRONIZEcommand signals each PMDF counters synchronization process in the cluster---there should be one such process on each node running PMDF. Note that on each node, the synchronization can only be performed if the PMDF counters synchronization process is running on that node.
Assuming that the PMDF counters synchronization process is running on each node, then for each node the node-specific, in-memory cache will be created, if it does not already exist. If the cluster-wide, on-disk database does not exist, it will be created. The in-memory cache values will be used to update the on-disk database, and then the on-disk database values for stored messages, recipients, and volume will be set by scanning the PMDF queue cache database.
