Running a Transaction Log Dump

Note: Like ctrdmp, ctldmp is itself a FairCom Server, therefore, the particular FairCom Server that generated the transaction logs being dumped by this utility should not be running while ctldmp is running. Typically, error TCOL_ERR (537, transaction log collision) is observed under these conditions.

Running a transaction log dump is a one-step process completed by starting ctldmp as any program in the environment, followed by up to three keyword/argument pairs specifying date, time and log number. ctldmp runs automatically, without prompting for any information, and informs you when it completes the transaction log dump.
