Online Log Display is an IDMS Tool online product used to navigate data contained in the DCLOG. It is invoked at the Enter Task Code using the Task Code LOGD. The Main Menu contains 5 options and an optional setting 'ARCHIVED è Y or N’(Y-YES, N-NO).

‘ARCHIVED =è N’ means you are limiting the display by suppressing archived records. Records remain in the log until the active log area becomes full. At that time they become archived and may be-reused. If the flag is set to 'N' then LOGD will not display records that are flagged for re-use. USKEVNT which is the main log event report program  has a check status routine which checks the archived record status by skipping from page to page in the log and doing an OBTAIN DBKEY of the first record in each page until it finds a page that has not been flagged for re-use. 

Change the ‘ARCHIVED” setting from No to Yes in order to display the archived log records.
