After adding JFM Feature to CA7, how can I write these records in the ENF Database?

Description:

You are in the process of adding the JobFlow Monitor (JFM) feature to CA7 and as a result you want to write the corresponding records to the ENF database. You are running CA Common Services r14.1 with CAIENF running with a database, either an internal or external Datacom/AD MUF.

You already have the required CA-7 DCM defined to the ENF parameter file (ENFPARMS)...


Your CAIENF log shows:           
CAS9214I - CA-ENF Command: DCM(CAL2DCM3)         * CA-7  137  
CAS9240I - DCM      - Command complete

In order to record the JFM records, you wonder if an event needs to be defined to ENF, and can this be done dynamically without cycling ENF?

Solution:

CA-7 JFM needs ENF to obtain event information for the CA7LOG event.

You can dynamically issue ENF EVENT commands to control processing for a specific event.

Here in this case for JFM (JobFlow Monitor), you can issue the command:

F ENF,EVENT(CA7LOG,ACT)
F ENF,EVENT(CA7LOG,REC)
F ENF,EVENT(CA7LOG,PURGE=Y)
 
You will get the result: 
 
CA-ENF Command: EVENT(CA7LOG,ACT)        
Event(CA7LOG  ) Status(*Active*)  *Record* 
                DCM(CAL2DCM3)              
EVENT    - Command complete

Any dynamically issued commands are only valid until you recycle ENF. Once recycled, ENF will pickup normal information from the ENFPARMS file or from how the event was defined within the database. It is therefore recommended that EVENT statements be defined to the ENFPARMS file so that the desired setting for the specific event are set at ENF startup.

Refer to the CA Common Services for z/OS Reference Guide for details about the ENF EVENT control option.
