    UTIL-X-8: hot or cold?

    There was a problem with our clear_vir01 run this morning and now we are seeing odd things happen in our OPAC.
    I want to clear the vir01 library using UTIL-X-8.
    When I select that option it asks if I want to use hot or cold.
    Which of these should I use?
    I'm guessing since we are currently online, hot would probably be the best option but I don't know what the differences are.

    If UTIL-X-8 is being run with the system up, it should be run with "hot".
    But if the previous clear_vir01 has failed, this may not work properly....

    The four vir01 tables involved in OPAC are the z63, z05, z110, and the z52. Checking with SQL and with UTIL-A-14-17, I found that the first three were OK, but that the z52 was empty.

    Running p_file_04 for the vir01 z52 corrected the problem.
