e-Spool is the spool file management product that provides an automated means of archiving and restoring spool files, reports from tape, savfs or from zipped files. e-Spool offers increased functionality when scheduling saves, deleting saved spool files, moving spool files, or sending spool files to networked systems automatically and tracking report locations for restore/recovery.

Saving Spool Files

The Save function allows saving one or more spool files based on the age, in days, or based on the user. Files can be further qualified by using the spool file creation date and time ranges, spool file status or number of days old. You can also save entire output queues. Spool files can also be saved to media or microfiche format for easy processing by a microfiche vendor.

Restoring Spool Files

The Restore function retrieves reports in exactly the same format they were when saved, restoring all of the spool file attributes such as the sameform type, number of copies, lines per page, original user and job name and all advanced function printing characteristics. If spool files was zipped, then spool file(s) will be immediately available to restore. Since the save was tapeless, the restore will be tapeless, thus saving valuable time in the restore process.

Sending Spool Files

e-Spool enables spool files to be sent across multiple networked AS/400s. e-Spool can be run continuously send an unlimited number of spool files to iSeries 400 systems. Totally Transparent moving of spool files between ISeries 400 Systems.

Moving Spool Files

e-Spool permits various spool files to be moved from one output queue to another on the same system or another AS/400. Spool files attached to a backlogged output queue may be moved to one that has less activity without changing each spool file individually. This increases the efficient use of system resources.

Inquiries and Reports

e-Spool prints a list of all spool files that were saved/zipped and not saved/zipped upon completion of the save process. At any time, an inquiry can be run showing all saved spooled files. selection criteria allows you to view subsets of the list.

AS/400 security compliant

e-Spool is taylored specifically for the iSeries 400 and makes full use of OS/400 security features. Therefore, no additional security setup is required. The commands used can have authority granted or revoked to them assuring total security to value spool file data. Only the users that are authorized to access specific spooled files and output queues can save and/or restore them. Unauthorized users are prevented from accessing confidential reports on the system. The security officers profile can grant or revoke any and all IBM and e-Spool privileges to the commands. This can be done for each valid user ID resulting customization to your company needs.

Even specific options can be made available or denied to individual users depending on whether or not the user has authorization. e-Spool can only be installed using the security officer ID. The security officer can then grant the appropriate authorization to users as desired.

Fast & Efficient

The speed and efficiency of the save and restore functions are highlights of this robust product. e-Spool fully utilizes the capabilities of the AS/400 and iSeries 400. The tapeless zipped system if the most efficient method on the AS/400 today. The system writes spool files directly to tape, savf or zipped file. Zipped files use minimal amount of DASD, which distinguishes e-Spool from competing products. This saves valuable AS/400 and/or iSeries 400 resources. In addition, the high speed of save and restore zip functions reduces processing time, while using minimal DASD leaves space for other data. e-Spool can also be invoked via commands for easy implementation into production programs or a job scheduler. It can be installed in a zip.

e-Spool brings security, integrity, availability and efficiency to spool management. To experience the benefits of this product, we recommend an onsite demo of e-Spool on your own AS/400 with your own spool files. For additional information or a 30-day free trial, call PAE Inc.at (603) 548-5721.
