The NQE 3.3 release has the following features that affect installation and upgrade of NQE:
Support was added for the following operating system levels: UNICOS/mk 2.0, UNICOS 10.0, HP-UX 10.10 (initially supported in the NQE 3.2.2 release), and IRIX 6.5. For a complete list of operating systems and release levels supported with the NQE 3.3 release, see Table 1-1.
The qstart(8) and qstop(8) commands now allow an administrator to execute programs immediately before and after the NQS daemon starts (NQE_ETC/q start.pre and NQE_ETC/qstart.pst, where NQE_ETC is defined in the nqeinfo file) and immediately before and after the NQS daemon is shut down (NQE_ETC/qstop.pre and NQE_ETC/qstop.pst, where NQE_ETC is defined in the nqeinfo file). The administrator must create the files, and they must be executable.
All nqeinfo file variables are now documented on the new nqeinfo(5) man page; this man page is also accessible through the Help facility of the NQE configuration (nqeconfig) utility.
This release replaces the NQE_TYPE variable in the nqeinfo(5) file with a new NQE_DEFAULT_COMPLIST variable, which defines the list of NQE components to be started or stopped. The NQE 3.3 release is shipped with the NQE_DEFAULT_COMPLIST variable set to the following components: NQS, COLLECTOR, and NLB.
