  • Engine Name: Enter the unique name of the iPDF Engine.
  • Status: Will be blank if not currently active; *ACTIVE = Open in view mode because engine is running.
  • Monitoring queue: Enter the name of the output queue to be monitored. One instance of iPDFMon per outqueue. Don't run iPDFMon on outqueues monitored by iDocs, iMail, or iView engines, or any dataqueue process.
  • Monitoring queue Library: Enter the library where the output queue resides.
  • Data queue Name: Specify a unique library/name for the dataqueue name. Use separate data queues for multiple monitors.
  • Data queue Library: Specify the Data Queue library to be used.
  • Prefix: Option to select a file name prefix if desired for identification..
  • Overwrite File: Enter 'Y' to overwrite file or 'N' to increment file name if existing.
  • Output type: Select *PDF or *TIF supported formats for the output file. See Note below.
  • Archive Output Queue: Enter a Archive Output Queue if you wish the originating output queue to be archived.
  • Archive Output Library: Enter the library location for the Archive Output Queue if specified above.
  • Perform Archive/Delete: N - leaves the processed file where the monitor found it; Y - with no Archive Output Queue specified deletes the processed input file; Y - with an Archive Output Queue specified archives the originating output file to the specified Archive Queue.
  • Use Splf Form Type in Name: Enter 'Y' or 'N'.
  • Use Splf User Profile in Name: Enter 'Y' or 'N'.
  • Use Splf Job Name in Name: Enter 'Y' or 'N'.
  • Use Splf Job Number in File Name: Enter 'Y' or 'N'.
  • Use Splf File Name in Name: Enter 'Y' or 'N'.
  • Use Splf Number in File Name: Enter 'Y' or 'N'.
  • Use Splf User Data in Name: Enter 'Y' or 'N'.
  • Output file to directory: Path for the IFS or Network output should be directed. Note that you can specify a remote networked directory as the output path using the QNTC file system. QNTC is a function of IBM i/OS and is documented here: IBM Knowledge Center

F10 to save changes.

Note… The output is based on the spool file that is fed into the out queue being monitored. If color PCL, then then output will be color when outputting to *PDF. If monochrome PCL, then the output will be black/white when outputting to *PDF or *TIF.

  • The output for *TIF is only in monochrome black/white
  • The output for *PDF can be monochrome black/white or color

You can use commands STRIPDFMON for a single entry or STRIPDFMONS for up to 100 engines, and ENDIPDFMON/ ENDIPDFMONS to start and end the monitors.
