SHUTQ



SHUTQ

     Closes the spool queue for the specified logical device or
     all devices in a device class.

SYNTAX


SHUTQ {[DEV={ldev }][;SHOW] }
{devclass}
{devname }
{ @ }

PARAMETERS


ldev The logical device number of the spooled device.

devclass The device class name of the spooled device.
DEVCLASS must begin with a letter and consist
of eight or fewer alphanumeric characters.
Device classes are treated as a group of
related devices. When a device class name is
used, the command is applied to all devices
that belong to that device class.

devname The device name of the spooled device. DEVNAME
must begin with a letter and consist of eight
or fewer alphanumeric characters. Users
should note that it is not possible to have a
device class name and a device name which are
the same. If you enter an alphanumeric
character string, the command will search the
device class first, and then the device name list.

SHOW The SHOW parameter displays the current queue
state (enabled or disabled) of the devices
specified with the OPENQ command.

@ The "@" parameter is used to globally disable
all spooling queues which are currently open.
When the spooling queues are globally
disabled, this will inhibit the creation of
output spoolfiles.

NOTE: If the "@" option is used, it is the only parameter allowed. The
SHOW option enterered with the @ options will return the following error:

CANNOT USE THE 'SHOW' OPTION WITH 'SHUTQ @'. (CIERR 4815)"

OPERATION


SHUTQ closes the spool queue for a logical device, device
name, or all devices belonging to a specified device class
configured in the system. A spooler process, however,
does not need to be running for any device. If a spooler
process is running, it is unaffected by shutting the queue.

This command also serves as an option to the STARTSPOOL command.

This command may be issued from a session, job, in BREAK, or
from a program. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this
command. It may be issued only from the console, unless
distributed to users with the ALLOW or ASSOCIATE command.

EXAMPLE(S)

     To shut the spool queue for logical device 6, enter:

     SHUTQ 6

     To shut the spool queue for device LDEV6 enter:

     SHUTQ LDEV6

     To shut spool queues for all the devices in device class
     EPOC enter:

     SHUTQ EPOC

     To shut spool queues and show the state of queues and
     other information about the specified device(s), enter:

     SHUTQ 6;SHOW

     LDEV   DEV        SPSTATE    QSTATE   OWNERSHIP    SPOOLID

       6    LDEV6      ACTIVE     CLOSED   SPOOLED OUT  #O679
