This section describes the tools provided with Adabas Vista.
The Adabas Vista file analysis tool AVILOOK provides statistics on the type and quantity of key-based accesses against an Adabas file. These statistics can be used to identify the Adabas files that may benefit from the Adabas Vista partitioning option.
The following screen is an example of the output provided by AVILOOK.
16:56:07 ***** A D A B A S VISTA SERVICES 8.1.1 ***** 2006-05-29 - Avilook File Statistics - V14120M1 DBID: 231 (TEST-V7-DB) File: 2 Started: 2006-05-29 09:09:20 Paused: CC Desc Command Count CC Desc Command Count L3 AA 2836 S1 AB 1324 L3 BC 24 L9 S1 26 Other Commands not listed above: 1558 Command ==> Enter-PF1---PF2---PF3---PF4---PF5---PF6---PF7---PF8---PF9---PF10--PF11--PF12--- Help Exit Refr Menu
This screen shows statistics on the command type and quantity of
key-based accesses against the file (for example,
L9 commands). The statistics are displayed in descending order by
command code (CC) and Adabas two-character field name (Desc).
In the example, there are 2836 accesses to file 2 using an
L3 command with the Adabas field AA as the primary
sequence field. Such a file, where the predominant access is by a single key,
may benefit from being partitioned using the Adabas field AA as the Adabas
Vista partitioning field.
