A TCP/IP Question or Two

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Aug 9, 2005
I would like to pose a question to those who are working with the IDMS
TCP/IP feature.

In looking at the IDMS literature, it appears that implementation of the
TCP/IP feature should be fairly straightforward.

We all know that documentation does not lie (but it doesn't always tell the
whole truth either). :-)

I wonder then, are there any ""gotchas"" to be aware of as we start down
this path ?

In addition, if/when we get to implementation, how is the reliability
and stability of this access ?

SYBASE Gateway to IDMS
"I would like to pose another query to the List (two in one day !).

We use a SYBASE token ring gateway to pass client requests from UNIX to
CICSTS 1.3 on Z/OS. CICS, in turn, runs COBOL applications which
access IDMS and return data to distributed clients via the SYBASE gateway.

We would like to transition our SYBASE gateway to TCP/IP and would like to
hear about experiences from other sites which have already done this.

TIA

Re: A TCP/IP Question or Two
"Hal,

We are using TCP/IP for an IDMS web-enabling application
we're developing. It has only been a few months but we're
onto our third environment, each one having it's own
connectivity, and all has gone well. We are crossing
multiple servers and firewalls between the users work
station and the mainframe. We are also using something
called a CCI line, which apparently won't be needed in SP2
and thus will make transmission speeds even faster. We have
all been very impressed with the speed at which the data
gets to and from IDMS. We'll be in production next month so
I'll keep you posted.

CA-World 2005
"Hi there!

Are you working longer? Trying to do more with less? Supporting more
applications and products, but no training on them? These are common
complaints that we all have. But what can be done about them?

Attend CA World that s what!

Recognizing the stress that we all feel for the growing complexity of
our jobs, the IUA s CA World committee and the CA World team has
designed a conference that will help you and your companies maximize
training dollars and help you stay ahead of the technology curve. We
have a good mix of CA and user presentations. What with last year s
release of R16 and the new R16 SP2 features, we have several
presentations showing how you can take advantage of these new features.
Lab sessions will allow you hands on experience with the new
technology. As usual, there is the technical campground where you can
meet with CA-IDMS staff and with representatives from the IUA board.

To sweeten the pot, a half day of free Advantage CA-IDMS education class
will be held before the start of CA-World. This is a wonderful
opportunity to stretch the training dollars!

Expand your horizons beyond IDMS. Hundreds of other sessions that run
the gamut of the IT industry will be held -- such as storage resource
management, application lifecycle management and business intelligence
sessions. Take advantage of these to broaden your knowledge base. In
addition to the educational sessions, vendors inside the Exhibition
Center from all areas of the IT industry will be demonstrating their
products and business solutions for you. Where else are you going to see
this under one roof?

Early bird registration is still on. Take advantage of it before it ends
on September 12th 2005.

Here are the facts:
CA-World 2005: November 13-17 2005
Las Vegas, Nevada. www.ca.com/caworld
Registration: $1,095
Early Bird Discount: $200 (register before Sept 12)
User Group discount: $200 (Contact the IUA or local User group)
IDMS ContSent: 21 technical & lab sessions, pre-con education.
Take a look at the CA-World session directory for full details

The IUA CA World committee is excited about this years offerings. We
are sure you will be too!

Apars QO71083 (16.0) and QO71174 (14.1)
"Hi,



These apars mention about removing type DB from storage pool 0 if it is
defined as being in another 24-bit storage pool. I seem to remember that
we could not do this before when we added a 24-bit pool for type DB.



So does this mean that we could create a new 24-bit pool defined for
type DB and if we have the apar applied it will remove the entry from
pool 0?



Thanks

"Yes Chris you are right.
The apar will remove type DB from pool 0 and that storage type will follow
the same rules as SH SK US UK type storage. With the apar, If you have a
small below the line storage pool to catch the overflow from the DB XA
storage pool when it gets full, you will not fill up storage pool 0 with DB
type storage and hang the CV. Of course the goal is never to go SOS in the
XA storage pools but if it happens this will save the CV.

Storage type system(pool 255) will still overflow to pool 0 for the time
being. CA is looking at this.

For storage pool 255 you can add some level of security to your CV by
issuing a DCMT V STORAGE POOL 255 CUSHION xxxx. For storage pool 255 CUSHION
is not a sysgen option like for other XA storage pool.So it has to be done
after the CV is up with a small batch job or an autotask or any other means.
CA is looking at this as well.
