Repairing / Restarting Channel.
Hi everybody,

When a database has a technical problem, the associated listeners work as "zombie listeners", and can't continue processing data.
Do you know how to Repair / Restart Channels from a PFLOW when the DDBB is repaired?

Thanks in advance.

TK.

TK,

Not sure why you want to do this from a pflow? If the DB listener is unaware of the issue on the DB it would be hard to automate a refresh of the channel.
If you want to be able to do this manually from a telnet session that can be done. You need to first setup the TelnetD listener > Move route > Default outlet > build and deploy channel. You will now be able to telnet into a commandline session on the iSM server from any device that supports a telnet client. To fix the DB listener you would simply execute > refresh (name) where name = the channel you wish to reinitialize. You can also run >stop (name) and then >start (name) if refresh does not work.
For a list of commands you can run within the telnet session simply type >help

Hope this helps,

Hi ATS,

I'm trying to create a PFLOW as a Centralized Errors Control Center in a Project.
The idea, is to let the PFLOW restarts any RDMS channel when the DataBase has a technical problem; just when the Database is ready.
Actually i can restart a Managed Server (configuration) from a PFLOW, but the idea is to do the same with channels.
The solution, you are talking about, requires some manually operations from someone, connecting through TELNET to operate; and is not my target.
Any other ideas?

Thanks.
TK.

TK,

You can use the XDControlAgent to stop and start Channel(s). So it will be up to you how to figure out if the RDBMS is availible.

Thank you so much ATS, that's what I was looking for. Sure, I need to learn more about iWay Services. Several years using other middlewares instead iWay, blocked my mind... Sweating
