CFTPARM - General parameters

The CFTPARM object is used to specify parameters that control the operation of Transfer CFT as a whole and to select other parameter setting commands to be used at run time. The Symbolic variables topic describes how symbolic variables can be used in the identification and in the body of these procedures.

Specific SSL, transport security, parameters are described in the topic Configuring Transport Security: Start here .

Description

Use this command to:

  • Specify the parameters which control overall Transfer CFT operations
  • Select the other parameter setting commands which should be taken into account during execution

Parameters

ACCNT

Identifier of the description command of the statistical data record of the transfers ( CFTACCNT).

BUFSIZE 

see table  

Size of the monitor internal buffer used to exchange data between monitor tasks, expressed in characters in bytes.

CAT

Identifier of the command describing catalog file management ( Defining the catalog parameters).

COM 

List of the identifiers of the communication media description commands ( Defining the communication media ).

COMMENT 

Character comment field.

CTLPASSW

Request that the security tool check the NSPART and NSPASSW parameters when a call comes into a server site.

DEFAULT

Default identifier, generically indicated as <defaut>, of the CFTRECV, CFTSEND, and CFTXLATE commands.

EXECRE

Generic name of the file describing the procedures to be executed, following an incident (Error) occurring during a receive transfer, the transfer changing to the H or K state.

EXECRF

Generic name of the file describing the procedures to be executed on completion of reception of a file.

EXECRM

Generic name of the file describing the procedures to be executed on completion of reception of a message.

EXECSE

Generic name of the file describing the procedures to be executed, following an incident (Error) during a send transfer, the transfer changing to the H or K state.

EXECSF

EXECSFA 

Generic name of the file describing the procedures to be executed on receiving an acknowledgement (REPLY type message), following the sending of a file.

EXECSM 

Generic name of the file describing the procedures to be executed on completion of the sending of a message.

EXECSMA 

Generic name of the file describing the procedures to be executed on receiving an acknowledgement, REPLY type message, following the sending of a message.

EXITEOT

EXIT identifier.

To activate an end of transfer EXIT task, the EXIT identifier that you use must point to a CFTEXIT command.

ID 

Identifier of the CFTPARM command.

KEY 

The name of the indirection file preceded by the <file-symb> character, which is system specific, and containing the set of keys associated with the Transfer CFT.

LENAPPL

Length to be taken into account when comparing the file/message identifier, IDF or IDM, with the identifier of a CFTAPPL command.

[FOR DETAILS: Security concepts: Start here ]

LOG

Identifier of the monitor event log file description command CFTLOG.

If this parameter is not defined, the Transfer CFT writes logging messages to the standard output of the monitor.

MAXTASK 

Number of file access tasks authorized.

MAXTRANS

The maximum authorized number of transfers in parallel. When using multi node, this is the number of transfers per node.

NET

List of the identifiers of the description commands for network access methods and monitor network resources CFTNET.

NPART 

Default network identifier of the local site.

Default value of the NSPART parameter of the CFTPART command.

As this name is sent by some file transfer protocols, refer to the Transfer CFT Managing Protocols to check its size and format.

PART

Local identifier, identifying the site on which Transfer CFT is executed.

This parameter is an item of information appearing in the transfer catalog.

PARTFNAM 

Partner file name.

PROT 

Identifier of the Transfer CFT protocol description commands CFTPROT.

Transfer CFT protocol refers to both file transfer application protocols and network access methods.

RCVALLER 

Option to be used if an error occurs when receiving available files FILE=ALL option.

SECFNAME

Name of the CFT internal security file.

TRANTASK

Number of transfers in parallel performed by a file access task, above which a new task is created, if possible.

TRKPART

Specification of how much detail Transfer CFT provides Sentinel about transfers. Transfer CFT sends detail about the transfers in the form of tracked instances.

TRKRECV

Specification of how much detail Transfer CFT provides Sentinel about transfers. Transfer CFT sends detail about the transfers in the form of tracked instances.

TRKSEND

Specification of how much detail Transfer CFT provides Sentinel about transfers. Transfer CFT sends detail about the transfers in the form of tracked instances.

USERCTRL

Transferred file access control option.

WAITRESP   see table

Time-out in seconds used during internal communication between monitor tasks.

This parameter is used during a synchronous exchange of requests between two monitor tasks. After waitresp seconds without reply, the time-out is interrupted. A message CFTS09 is written in the log. The task in question is then stopped, CFTTCOM task, for example.

During the initialization phase, this parameter checks the time allowed for each of the Transfer CFT monitor tasks to start. In the event of an insufficient value (case of a highly loaded computer), the Transfer CFT monitor initialization stops.

The following table indicates the default value for each system.

WAITTASK 

Time during which a file access task is inactive in minutes before being shut down.

 

Changing the initial IDPARM in CFTUTIL

The format that you use to enter commands in CFTUTIL is operating system dependant. For more information, refer to the Operations Manual that corresponds with your operating system.
