    Aleph Z00P records not Written when xxx01 Records updated **MASTER RECORD**

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local; Total Care

    Problem Symptoms:
    We have updated several xxx01 BIB records in the past week but I find that they are not being published and no Z00P record is being written to the $usr_library.

    Cause:
    Unknown, probably the ue process was not stopped during an Oracle shutdown/restart.

    Resolution:
    * Stop xxx01 ue_21, using util e/22
    * restart util e/21.

    Explanation and analysis
    In order for a changed BIB record to be processed by publish-06 (which creates a tar file for input to Primo), the following needs to happen:

    1.a. an xxx01 Z07 record needs to be written and the BIB ue_01 needs to process the z07 and write an xxx01 Z07P;
    OR
    1.b. an xxx01 Z07A record, written by ue_01, needs to processed by ue_01_z0102, which writes an xxx01 Z07P;
    OR
    1.c. an update occurs to a Z36 (loan) record or a Z37 (request) record, which writes an xxx01 Z07P record

    2. the BIB ue_21 needs to process the Z07P and write a Z00P record to the $usr_library

    Example
    * Z07P records were being written in abc01
    * ue_21 appears in util c/1
    * Z07P records have not been processed since Feb. 24:

    >> ls -lrt *e_21*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 aleph18 exlibris 539 Feb 20 16:05 run_e_21.20999
    -rw-r--r-- 1 aleph18 exlibris 539 Feb 23 10:01 run_e_21.32422
    -rw-r--r-- 1 aleph18 exlibris 299 Feb 24 20:52 run_e_21.11524

    util f/4 showed 13 (unprocessed) Z07P records.

    After stopping/restarting ue_21, xxx01 Z07P records should be successfully processed.

    If no z07p is record is created, the problem may be with the z07a. See link to Article 000038050 ("z07a record count not going down") below in that regard.

    Additional Information


    To ensure, that the ue_21 process is running smoothly, the following SQL can be run several times. SQL-XXX01>> select count(*) from z07p; The number of z07p records should not be increasing.
