The output from the Top Secret command: TSS MODI FAC(CICSPROD), shows something like this:

TSS9567I CICSCACHE=TASKLIFE,NOAUDIT,0512                              

TSS0300I  MODIFY   FUNCTION SUCCESSFUL                                

***                                                                   

The TSS9567I shows either CICSCACHE=TASKLIFE or CICSCACHE=SESSLIFE.

 

TASKLIFE and SESSLIFE deal with caching resource validations for resources such as OTRAN, FCT, DCT PPT, etc. When a resource is validated, the results are placed in the cache. The next time the same resource check is done, CA Top Secret checks the cache to see the results. An example of this is when one is browsing a file, when the first check for the FCT takes place, we cache the results. The next time that FCT check takes place, CA Top Secret checks the cache first.                          

The difference between TASKLIFE and SESSLIFE is that for TASKLIFE, at the end of the transaction we clear out the cache (end of the task).

With SESSLIFE, the cache is cleared out when the user signs off (end of the session).

The cache is kept in 31 bit storage in private.
