Promoting IBM i – Fresh Faces!

In my previous two blogs, I’ve talked about reasons your executives might have to do a review of your platforms—things which indicate that the time is right to get prepared to promote the value of IBM i to your business leaders. To do that promotion, you need information. Today I’m going to address one of those reasons: staffing.

Trace Output Formatted for PCAP

Dump a Communications Trace was a blog I wrote back in 2009. That article reviewed the support for dumping the trace data in “packet capture” (PCAP) format and hinted that the DMPCMNTRC command would likely be updated to support this feature (without the need for a data area).

Tech Tip: Be Like a Turtle!

Especially in the open source world, people talk about shells a lot. Instructions to “run this command in a shell” are standard fare. But, what is a shell? Simply put, a shell is a command processor. It is a program that takes input from the user and runs the appropriate commands. Conceptually, it is much like the CL entry screen you’ve used in 5250. Rather than running CL commands from the QSYS.LIB filesystem, it runs executable binaries from a hierarchical file system (stream files from the QOpenSys or root filesystems on IBM i). This includes things like open source language runtimes, common shell commands (ls, cd, pwd, cp), or any PASE executable (most open source). The best way to access a shell on IBM i is from an SSH client.
