What do these user-exit programs provide?

The accounting and auditing user-exit programs record statistical data on jobs processed by InfoPrint actual destinations. PSF DSS accounting, post-print, and audit user-exit programs shows the most common accounting and auditing user-exit programs, the files where they record data, and the types of data that they record.

Note: /usr/lpp/psf/bin/ainacclog and /usr/lpp/psf/bin/ainaudlog record the same information in different files.
This information is specified in flat ASCII format, with a single line for each job that is processed. You can use this information to determine billing procedures, to assess the workload of different output devices, or to determine how resources are used at your installation.

The ainuxjobcompletion exit is called when the printer reports back to InfoPrint Manager that all of the pages for a job have printed. This includes a partial job (due to a data stream error or because the job was paused/canceled or forward-spaced) and also any extra pages produced as a result of a backspace or other recovery. For the last job that prints on a continuous forms printer, the exit is not called until an NPRO (non-process run out) is done, either by an operator or automatically by InfoPrint Manager.

Only one record is written for a job that prints, unless a job is paused. In this case, a record is written for the part of the job that was printed up to the pause point; later, if the job is resumed another record is written for the rest of the job.

Note: If InfoPrint Manager does not receive feedback from the printer that all pages have stacked, such as when the printer is shut down in the middle of a job or when an error such as a server failure occurs, no record is written.

A new procedure has been added to the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI to show you how to activate the default PSF ainuxjobcompletion accounting logs. The ainuxjobcompletion accounting exit interface can be used for PSF-driven IPDS printers. It provides actual (versus projected) accounting data and provides additional information about completed print jobs.
