IDMS 16.0 in Production

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Feb 23, 2005
Hi All,

Out of interest can I have a show of ""hands"" on how many sites are
currently in production with 16.0 or on their way to implementing it?

Sam

Winter Corporation 2005 Top Ten Program
"Dear IDMS user,


We all know that CA-IDMS supports some of the largest databases in the
world and handles some of the highest transaction processing rates -
here's an opportunity to let the rest of the world know that CA-IDMS is
still a major player in the mainframe DBMS world. The Winter
Corporation is once again running its large database survey.

The Winter Corporation 2005 TopTen Program
<http://www.wintercorp.com/VLDB/2003_TopTen_Survey/TopTenProgram.html>
identifies the largest and most heavily used databases in the world. In
the past few years, CA-IDMS has had 2 or 3 top ten winners. The IUA and
CA would like to encourage more CA-IDMS users to participate since we
believe that there are some big sites out there who haven't participated
in the past.

In order to qualify, you must have at least 1 terabyte of user data.
You need to fill out a questionnaire and provide information to
validate your numbers. There are different categories in the Program:

* Total number of rows in User Tables (validation is done by using
the PRINT SPACE... FULL utility)
* Total Database Size (validation is done by same PRINT SPACE report)
* Normalized Database Size (validation is done by same PRINT SPACE
report) - What Winter Corp is attempting to get at with this
category is to try to compare ""apples to apples"" by having users
identify the individual columns data types and have everyone use
the same size for a data type (ie. a date field would count as 8
bytes regardless of how much space it actually took) and to allow
folks who use lots of compression to get full benefit of the size
of their data. Winter Corp will accept the PRINT SPACE report for
this category.
* Transactions per Hour (validation done by CA-supplied Culprit job
to report the number of update transactions/commits) - The
Culprit job, available on Winter Corp's site, reads the
concatenated archive journal files (covering your 4-5 hours peak
processing time) and reports the highest hourly commit rate.
* SQL statements per Hour (validation is done by screen prints from
two DCMT D STATS SYSTEM commands) - Winter Corp understands that
most IDMS activity may not be just SQL statements, and therefore
they will accept the combination of SQL and native DML statements.
This count is provided by the ""Records Current of RunUnit""
available on the the DCMT D STATS SYSTEM statement display. This
stat will be collected by issuing a DCMT D STATISTICS SYSTEM,
getting a screen print, then an hour later repeating the process.
The difference between the 2 ""Recs Cur R/U"" values is considered
to be the number of ""SQL statements"" in that time period. This
should be done during your peak processing period and they want at
least 60 minutes between the before and after screen shots.
* Users (validation is done with DCMT D STATS SYSTEM) - This
corresponds to the total number of users, defined to the security
system, who have access to the system, and also to the maximum
concurrent users on the system. CA has written an apar (QO64151
for R16, QO64153 for R15 and QO64154 for R14.1- available on
SupportConnect.ca.com) that adds a line to the DCMT D STATS SYSTEM
output to list the number of users currently signed on and the
high water mark since the CV startup.


If you have not participated in the past because your organization has a
policy of not being published in these sort of surveys, you can still
participate in this program. Winter Corp recognizes that some companies
have this sort of policy and while the questionnaire requires that you
identify yourself, there is a check box where you can request to be
listed as anonymous if you are one of the ""top ten"". In fact, an
""anonymous"" entry has made it in the top ten in past surveys.

The following is the link to the survey:
http://www.wintercorp.com/VLDB/2005_TopTen_Survey/2005_TTSurvey_Frame.htm

There are links on this page to the actual questionnaire and the
validation requirements (the IDMS validation script tells exactly what
you have to do, and provides the Culprit program).

Please remember that the questionnaire and validation must be in by July
15th 2005.

The information of this email will be posted on the IUA website under a
news items, for reference.

If your site has a large database, please take the time to fill out this
questionnaire.

Thank you,
Laura Rochon
IUA
