WLM dynamic application environment operator commands

The dynamic application environments are displayed and controlled separately from static application environments. To control the dynamic environments, set the Resource Access Facility (RACF ) server class profiles to give you the proper permission to issue MVS™ console commands.

If we have the proper permission, we can issue the following commands from the MVS console:

Display a specific dynamic application environment

D WLM,DYNAPPL=appl_env_name (appl_env_name is the short cluster name)

Display all dynamic application environments


Restart a specific dynamic application environment

V WLM,DYNAPPL=appl_env_name,RESUME

Quiesce a specific dynamic application environment
