Support Connect Response Time

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on May 11, 2006
I'm getting 4-5 minute response time from Support Connect this morning -
IE just spins like a twirling dervish. Anyone else having the same
success as I am?

OCF
"Hi all,

I know we can call DCMT and DCUF from an online program. Is it possible
to call OCF from an online program? I thought we could, but I can't find
the doc for it.

Thanks!

Calling OCF
"Hi all,

Please disregard the previous email.... I just found it. It's in Common
Facilities. I had been looking in the Callable Services and the DBA
guides, and it wasn't in there.

Have a nice day,
Laura

VSAM Transparency
"Hello everyone,

At this moment we are converting BS2K UTM applications to BS2K IDMS.
A part of it is to convert ISAM files under UTM to IDMS databases. After that part, the whole IDMS environment is taken and put onto a Z/os environment. The online application is not a problem, everything is rewritten to DML.
But... The batch is now running against the ISAM files and thats a complexer story. Later on, at Z/os, this batch must run against the IDMS database. To avoid a complete restructuring of the batch programs we consider to use VSAM transparency.
The questions is: does anyone have experience with the use of VSAM transparency and/or shoot we use it or not?
note: At BS2K idms R14.1 is active and at the IBM R16 sp 3 is running.
With regards,

Memory cache
"I would like to hear from anyone who has used the new memory cache
feature.
I also have a couple of questions:

1) How is this better than a very large buffer?
2) If you use memory cache for a file, should you make its buffer
small?
3) Is it a good idea to do something at startup to read the entire file
into the memory cache?

Re: Memory cache
"Kay,

The updates will get written to DASD but not at the time that IDMS does
its write. Remember the data is actually 'above the bar' in memory. With
Disk cache as well the data does not get physically written to disk when
IDMS does its write. We are talking about a short time here not until
the system shuts down.

We do create special local mode DMCL's for our local mode batch but
without the ability to 'pre-load' data 'above the bar' it cannot be as
effective. A local mode batch job has a pre-defined access path. Memory
cache works best for random access against data that could be used
later. Online a database page could be accessed at start up and not
touched again until shut down. In this case it would get put 'above the
bar' until it is needed again. IDMS does not go back to the disk
subsystem to get the database page once it is 'above the bar'.

HTH
