are you checking for ""both"" log full msgs?


i believe DC050004 is spit out when the log is 100% full - this message is
NOT checked by vanilla WTOexit

i have seen a log fill up so quicly due to a dump that the DC050001 is
never issues - only the DC050004 - and the vamilla wtoexit would never
catch it

you only need to test the programs that you want to work correctly

[IDMSVENDOR-L] Strange thing in IDMS 17.0 SP1 DCLOG
Sent by:

Hello All:

I just upgraded another Client to 17.0 SP1 and we are having a few issues;
one was with TSSMAI from Top Secret and there is a fix for that from CA.

The next issue is that the CV is not spitting out the log % full message
what is happening is that the log is filling up and the offload job is
getting submitted?

The exit is fine because it is submitting the Journal archive just fine.

The Messages for the Journal and log have the same destination and OS
codes, I have checked all of that. I have even restored and re-received
applied the startup user modification with no change.

The Log was formatted before we brought the CV up using IDMS 17.0 SP1

We also had an issue with easy test causing system module program checks
near RHDCUXIT with all the tool kit exits installed. We have pulled all
exits from RHDCUXIT and easy test works fine. We still have to work with
vendors on a resolution for this one.

The last issue is the submission of the log archive, I know the exit is
working and the log has filled many times, but the IDMS Region is simply
issuing the log % full message?

And here is another strange thing when we view the log with LOGD we see
these system module program checks from four days ago and the log has
at least five times since then because we have to archive it manually.

So my question is how does IDMS issue that log message, is there some sort
of header record in the log that might be corrupted?

We can always format the log but the Client is reluctant to do that
an explanation of why this is happening.

"I have been running as follows using the PARM on the EXEC statement in the
STC PROC since R16 SP7, without of the ZIIP parm on R16 of course, with all
R17s from the first Beta through to the GA SP0 and with the R17 SP 1 since
it was first available. I have had absolutely no hiccups or oddities with
the Journal and Log offloads as they are submitted by the WTOEXIT and run
just fine. There are multiple versions of the aforementioned CVs running
24/7 on 3 different versions of z/OS including 1.11.

The fact that people are having problems with this seems a bit
