AVZLINE support for outbound connections

We have a REXX script named REXUSER, provided a few years ago, that processes connections for ACI/Adabas users. It issues command RXRC = AVZRXPC(SUBSYS,'DISPLAY', 'REMU', 500, 1920 ) then parses the line details. We would like to use this (or simi...

before DVM termination, wait for seconds which defined in CLIENTQUIESCEDELAY until there are no PSB scheduled with DVM.

DVM v1.1 IMS v13 With above env, we issued /P AVZS to terminate DVM while PSB is still scheduled. Then, it caused U3398 error of that application. We believe that termination command should wait till application will be stopped, or at le...

Use Data Stage data map as input to DVM Virtual Table definition

Currently Data Stage users who want to use DVM, must convert the Data Stage metadata maps to COBOL copybooks to be used when defining a DVM virtual table. It would be more efficient to the user to use the Data Stage metadata map as input to the DV...

Exploit the data that RMF is generating in online mode

GISS wants to exploit the data that RMF is generating in online mode, that is, to exploit the data that RMF is holding online. Probably an easy way is to access the VSAM file where RMF keeps the data, but we don’t know the record layout. We see th...

Ability to refresh a single Map and not the entire Maplib in batch

Modify the AVZMREFB REXX to allow for the refresh of a single VSAM MAP and not the entire Maplib. When controlling the refresh of VSAM maps in a batch environment where the VSAM files are reloaded frequently there is the need to control the refres...

Refresh all DVM's sharing the same map dataset

In multi-LPAR environments, we will have a single DVM subsystem running across more than one LPAR. When maps are created in DVM, we would want all instances of DVM that are sharing the same map dataset to be refreshed.
