• Mainframe COBOL – The OVERFLOW Condition.

    We would like to able to identify procedural code which, at runtime , has the potential to result in overflow ie the resultant field is not large enough the derived value. Hopefully manually inspecting the code can be avoided (given that we have in excess of 30,000 programs!). Is there a compiler...

  • COBOL TGT At Run Time

    Is it possible to get access to the Cobol Task Global Table at run time in batch and cics (Enterprise Cobol for zOS)? I understand that using register 13 you can get access to the DSA, and using the DSA you can get access to the TGT, but I don't know how to get access to register 13 from Cobol. Do...

    Hello, Just wondering how the following situation can be addressed while remaining faithful to SMP/E: we have two different environments that we're both migrating to z/OS 1.9. In so doing, we want to have a single SMP/E environment for z/OS, as the differences between the two reside elsewhere....

  • BMP scheduling of IMS and DB2 database access.

    Application developers have nearly completed a conversion from IMS to DB2. They have used BMP to leave their test subsystems available to online tranactions. One day BMP users of BMP failed with U3042. This only occured for BMP users testing with IMS & DB2 databases. I am investigating the issue,...

  • Reducing DISK I/O z/OS 1.4

    I have a C loadmodule that is called 1000's of times a day. The first action it takes is to open a PDS with 41 members and read them. This PDS's members are only "text", no load modules. I would like to know in what way I could cache them in memory and totally bypass DASD disk I/O. Thank you, John...

  • IBM DB2 load restart

    I am faced with a situation where my SYSREC file for a LOAD could potentially have duplicates. If there are dupes then I have a step that follows that analyses the SYSDISC file,so my DISCARDS is set to 0. If for whatever reason the utility blows up (ran out of space, whatever) and I choose to...

  • DB2 Z/os IRLMWT parm

    We are considering lowering the lockwait time from the two minute default to 60 seconds and then possibly even lower. What do you have it set to today? Have you had any experience with having it set well below one minute?
