The new scriptable contexts are shown below:

AFTER Analysis of AFTER activity list in the SUPERVISOR schedule
DEFINE Analysis of the DEFINE dictionary in the SUPERVISOR schedule
SHOWOPEN Analogous to the MCP command of the same name, SHOWOPEN
allows analysis of open files, both temporary and permanent, on any
disk family
SESSIONS Analogous to the new MCP command of the same name, SESSIONS
allows analysis of all active job and MCS sessions
SL Analysis of MCP SL-ed functions
STATIONS Analysis of all active datacom stations, including pseudo
stations, with detailed MCS information.

The Metalogic OBI interface, which uses a web browser to depict a wide range of MCP environmental and operations information, provides links to all the above contexts.
