DB2 MEPL (Module Entry Point List) Comparison Program

The MEPL Comparison program will compare the MEPL from two DB2 subsytems, the Master and Target. The Target is compared against the Master to find any discrepancies in the Target such as missing, unknown and also determine PTF level:

*....DSNB1AGB11/26/9611.57 ....* BACK LEVELED CSECT - CURRENT PTF UQ22951
*....DSNB1AHS11/22/9616.12 ....* CURRENT LEVEL CODE
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MISSING LOAD MODULE AND CSECT COMBINATION
*.2..DSNLADRA11/23/9615.23 ....* UNKNOWN LOAD MODULE AND CSECT COMBINATION

This program can be used to verify maintenance on a Target DB2 subsystem. A Master MEPL could be provided by IBM for customer use. This program could help customer identify (lack of) maintenance problems before they become issues, also to identify maintenance that has been misapplied.
