Tech Tip: CA IDMS CV Startup Slow

Discussion created by baije01 Employee on Mar 27, 2018

Issue:

Our CV is taking much longer than normal to startup.

 

Cause:

This can be caused by startup AUTOTASKs, particularly if they have the PREEMPT option set.

Startup AUTOTASKs are submitted between the following two messages:

11.56.42 JOB04436 +IDMS DC013006 V7 T0 ATTACHING STARTUP AUTOTASKS

11.56.42 JOB04436 +IDMS DC013005 V7 T0 CENTRAL VERSION INITIALIZATION COMPLETE

If a startup AUTOTASK has the PREEMPT option, then that task must complete before user tasks are allowed to run.

This can have the effect of delaying startup.

 

Resolution:

Investigate any startup AUTOTASKs defined for the CV and ideally determine if any have the PREEMPT option.

If it is acceptable for the application, change it to NOPREEMPT.
