onstat -f Dataskip Status

The onstat -f command will show which DBSpaces will be skipped should that particular DBSpace have a failure.


    When a DBSpace is skipped due to a failure, your application should trap the SQLCODE and ISAM return value and notify the end user.

    The DATASKIP setting in the configuration file can be overridden by the application using the SET DATASKIP statement.

Monitoring and Tuning

    The dataskip feature is controlled by the DATASKIP parameter in the configuration file. The actual status of a DBSpace can be monitored via the onstat -d command.

    Use of the DATASKIP feature should be performed with care. If the feature is turned on, but applications are not looking for the appropriate warnings, SQL output could be missing data without the user's knowledge.
