After starting ESP Workload Manager, is it possible to run a few test events, but not allow the normally scheduled events from triggering?

The following steps will allow a user to submit certain events while the rest are held:

  1. Start ESP Workload Manager with PARM=QUIESCE.

  2. Using the CLASS command from Pagemode, all Events can be held, except the test Events. Example...

    CLASS - HOLD;CLASS TEST EXEMPT The above command will hold all Events, except those Events that have a prefix of TEST or have been coded with CLASS(TEST).

  3. To remove the Quiesce, enter OPER RESTART from Pagemode.

  4. Run your Test Events.

  5. Once done, just enter CLASS - RELEASE. Regular processing of events begins.

This could be useful after doing an upgrade.
