AI File Management utility

The AI File Management utility provides customers with a best-practice approach to managing after-image extents. The utility has three major goals:
*Archive FULL AI extents to a user-specified location
*Maintain a log file to aid in ROLL FORWARD
*Be tightly integrated with OpenEdge Replication
AI File Management has two modes: automatic and manual. The automatic mode allows users with little or no experience with after imaging to quickly get started. In automatic mode, the utility handles AI extent archival for you. In the manual mode, the knowledgeable user has greater control over the process of archiving AI extents.
* Automatic extent archiving
* Enabling your database for automated AI file management
* Monitoring and adjusting automated AI File Management
* Restarting the AI file management utility daemon
