Re:question about numbered user exits

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Oct 18, 2010
I am reading Chris Hoelscher's article on z/IIP exploitation in the
September 2010 ""IUA Connections"" with great interest as our site
experienced the problem that he describes. Chris indicates that the
numbered user exits can contribute to TCB/SRB swapping. We use exit 28
(security pre-processing) and I am wondering if this could account for
some of the high swapping rate that we saw.

Here is my question: Is there any way to determine how many times a
numbered user exit is actually being executed?

Re: question about numbered user exits
"As a result of lots of interaction with John Siraco about my user exits
during my z/IIP implementation, I decide to remove my Exit 17 and Exit
18 stubs as I never use them. I seem to remember that we were not
entirely sure whether they swap or not but as I didn't neeed them...
