A convenient way to provide input to Historical Server is to type the commands in a text file and use that file as input. The Historical Server input file is not an isql file, and does not necessarily conform to isql conventions. For example, Historical Server does not have a comments feature.
Appendix D, “Examples of Recording Session Views” provides examples of views that you might use as a start for your input files. These views also appear in the views file that was installed in the sample/histserver subdirectory in the installation directory. However, that the file includes explanatory text that you must remove before using the file as input to Historical Server.
