This document explains how to enable Insight to offload (unload) the History file.


The UNLOAD Modify command forces the data collector to unload the accounting file, the statistics file or both.


The SYSOPR userid, defined in the Insight Security file, must be authorized to issue the UNLOAD command. This is done by specifying HISTORY-UNLOAD=YES in the security profile associated with SYSOPR. By default this is the OPERATOR security profile.

 	/F <jobname>,UNLOAD {ACCT|STAT|ALL}

 	/f haygr012,unload all
