How expensive are GETMAINs to a transaction in CICS? Some of our transactions can use over 10,000 of them. Would reducing the number have significant performance results?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’ve never used a GETMAIN in a CICS application program. I have only used them in batch jobs.

I cannot give you a diffinative answer as to the cost of a GETMAIN and its associated FREEMAIN.

But <i>anything</i> that is done in a CICS program 10 <i>thousand</i> times has to be expensive. Reducing the number of anything that is done 10,000 times would speed up the program.
