Archiving (BACKUP of) queue database?

» close window

The Question is:

Is there any way to dump all information about a queue all at once using
 GETQUI, rather than having to loop through each GETQUI item?  I would like to
 be able to take information about queues and be able to rebuild them if I lose
queue startup files

The Answer is :

  The Compaq Customer Support Center has access to DCL-based tools
  that can read off and archive the entire contents of the current
  queue database.
  A more limited example of processing queue entries iteratively using
  f$getqui is included in Ask The Wizard topic (3951).
  The tools referenced above are based on f$getqui or sys$getqui, and
  the tools particularly use iteratation to read the information from
  the queue database.  (There exists no mechanism available within
  OpenVMS itself to archive a particular queue nor to archive the entire
  queue database as a single operation, save for a quescing the queue
  system and performing a BACKUP of the queue database.)
  Also obviously available is the use of a dedicated site-specific queue
  creation and startup command procedure.  While this procedure clearly
  does not track the entries within the queues, a correctly maintained
  DCL command procedure does permit the quick recreation of the queues
  Existing discussions of the f$getqui lexical include the following
  topics: (813), (1240), (2159), (3951), (4546), (4568), (4903), (5188)
  (5471), (5567), (5651), (5793), (5982), (6315), (6877), etc.
