Re: BRMS Retain Object Detail - *LIB vs *OBJ



fixed

Takes @ 4 minutes to reach restricted state.

Total save time is @ 61 minutes, of which 1.5 minutes is QUSRBRM.

Time from "Subsystem QCTL in library QSYS starting." to "BRMS console
monitor is now active" (the last message in QSYSOPR relating to restarting
things) is @ 7 minutes.

So the actual save is the bulk of the time. What I wasn't sure about was
if Retain Detail *OBJ was making this actual save time longer and by how
much.

And yes, I like being able to see the object detail when I want. I think
I'll keep it the way it is.

Is your backup running 10 minutes? Just the actual save time; not all
that bringing the system in/out of restricted state stuff. Is it worth
losing the granularity to shave off some time? It may be. Just saying
that the actual save may not be the bulk of your save outage. See
DSPLOGBRM *BKU to break it down.

It's amazing what you can stumble upon.

I've always used *OBJ. The manual says:

"We recommend that you be selective with retaining object-level
information
because it increases your disk storage considerably and affects your save
and
restore times. Unless you are constantly restoring individual objects from
a
library, there is no need to keep object-level information. Remember that
you
can always restore an individual object even without keeping object-level
information as long as you know the library in which the object was
stored."

Disk space isn't an issue as we have gobs of it. Save time? I don't know
how much of an effect it has there. Experiences, anyone?

I don't use multi-member physical files other than source physical files.
Can I still restore an individual source member if needed?

I seldom need to restore anything. Usually it's because someone asks me a
question about why something happened a week after the fact. I'll pull in
a couple of files to see what they looked like at the time.
