psadmin utility

I’m glad that Oracle finally made the much needed integration of the web (PIA) server to the psadmin utility. I know its years late but I only got my hands on recently as part of  our upgrade from 8.51 to 8.53 PeopleTools. Here is a quick comparison

8.51 8.52/8.53

The PIA is a good addition to simplify managing environment. During my 8.4x days, managing PIA involves familiarity of weblogic/websphere command line, change directory and log monitoring to ensure that the PIA started correctly and your peoplesoft environment are accessible online.

Most PS admins create a wrapper script/batch file consolidating the above task. The wrapper script/batch file then gets integrated into scheduling tools such as Control-m, cron, etc. This is quite important especially when implementing scheduled maintenance for your application.

The key to simplifying the task also lies in the familiarity with the following commandlines(I’m using 8.53 as example):

Application Server

Command Example Result of the Example
boot psadmin -c boot -d PSDMO Boots an application server domain named   PSDMO.
parallelboot psadmin -c parallelboot -d PSDMO Boots an application server domain named   PSDMO, using the parallel boot option.
configure psadmin -c configure -d PSDMO Reloads the domain configuration for the   PSDMO domain.
pslist psadmin -c pslist -d PSDMO Displays the processes that have been booted   for the PSDMO domain. This includes the system process ID for each process.
shutdown psadmin -c shutdown -d PSDMO Shuts down the PSDMO application server   domain, by using a normal shutdown method.

In a normal shutdown, the domain waits for   users to complete their tasks and turns away new requests before terminating   all of the processes in the domain.

shutdown! psadmin -c shutdown! -d PSDMO Shuts down the PSDMO application server   domain by using a forced shutdown method.

In a forced shutdown, the domain immediately   terminates all of the processes in the domain.

sstatus psadmin -c sstatus -d PSDMO Displays the Tuxedo processes and PeopleSoft   server processes that are currently running in the PSDMO application server   domain.
cstatus psadmin -c cstatus -d PSDMO Displays the currently connected users in   the PSDMO application server domain.
qstatus psadmin -c qstatus -d PSDMO Displays status information about the   individual queues for each server process in the PSDMO application server   domain.
preload psadmin -c preload -d PSDMO Preloads the server cache for the PSDMO   domain.
cleanipc psadmin -c cleanipc -d PSDMO Cleans the IPC resources for the PSDMO   domain.
purge psadmin -c purge -d PSDMO Purges the cache for the PSDMO domain.
import psadmin -c import

c:\ptinstalls\pt85x\…

\psappsrv.cfg` -n NEWSRVR

Imports a domain configuration.

See PSADMIN command line help for all   possible options.

 

Process Scheduler

Command Example Result of the Example
start psadmin -p start -d psdmo Starts a Process Scheduler.
stop psadmin -p stop -d psdmo Stops a Process Scheduler.
configure psadmin -p configure -d psdmo Configures a Process Scheduler.
status psadmin -p status -d psdmo Displays the status of a Process Scheduler.
cleanipc psadmin -p cleanipc -d psdmo Cleans the IPC resources for specified   domain
kill psadmin -p kill -d psdmo Kills the domain (similar to forced   shutdown).

 

PeopleSoft Internet Architecture

Command Example Result of the Example
start psadmin -w start -d peoplesoft Starts the peoplesoft domain.
shutdown psadmin -w shutdown -d peoplesoft Stops the peoplesoft domain.
shutdown! psadmin -w shutdown! -d peoplesoft Performs a forced shutdown of the peoplesoft   domain.
status psadmin -w status -d peoplesoft Displays the status of the domain (started,   stopped, and so on).
remove psadmin -w remove -d peoplesoft Deletes the domain.

 

Miscellaneous commands

Command Description
psadmin -h Displays command help and syntax.
psadmin -v Displays the PSADMIN version number, as in Version   8.53.
psadmin -env Displays your current environment variables.
psadmin -defaultps_cfg_home Displays the current PS_CFG_HOME environment   variable.
psadmin -replicate -ch <source PS_CFG_HOME> Replicates a PS_CFG_HOME and its configured   domains to a new location, where they can be started without manual   reconfiguration.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
