We have not yet been doing DBMON but is on Al to-do mountain.

Klutz me tried to "order" it via SNDPTFORD & it started loading something 
which took 1 1/2 hours to get done over our ECS line which is ordinary ma 
bell direct dial up line (not thru PBX) which could be anything between 300 & 
1200 baud in our neck of the telecommunication woods.  Log says we got (for 
V4R3M0) PTFs copied in this sequence: SF 53723 53227 52774 52773 52772 52775 
51580 52226 52970 53073 51734 51733 51731 51688

I did not try to apply or read contents or anything - I was just grateful it 
got done without any bad messages, and had infintesimal impact on disk space.

By comparison when I ordered Net Change info related to the move from V7R3 to 
V4R3, the data arrived a whole lot faster than this - of course it took me 
longer to read & digest it.

Murphy's law was alive & well last nite - normally I do backup before CST900 
& I had no idea how long this IBM sucker was going to take & I had just been 
bragging to you guys about how we almost never have to restore from backup, 
so I started CST900 purge all shop orders all facilities, while waiting on 
it, planning to run backup when the both of them got done ---- 5 minutes 
later this IBM sucker finished.
