Error description

  • These issues will be addressed via the APAR:
    1. Write event record to journal when a command has been issued
       to drain or resume a datastore, or a datastore has been
       "autoresumed".
    2. Provide a way to report the number of outstanding responses
       for a datastore.
    3. Type 1 commands issued via IMS Connect Extensions being
       routed to wrong IMS Connect.
    4. Incorrect data transmitted to Operations Console GUI client
       for some ODBM sessions.
    5. Reduce the time that the Publisher API Buffer Lock is held
       by CEX.
    6. The PROC= field for the type 41 event record from the Print
       Utility can contain blanks. New flag bits have been added
       to OMCTLPFG that are not supported by the print utility.
    7. An abend0C4 may occur in module CEXEXRTR routine TRCDATA
       if called by routing FGBL. The TRCDATA routine is doing trace
       in a environment that has not been initialized for trace.
    8. If a datastore is drained while a Resume Tpipe is active
       with the Auto option, the datastore may not completely drain
       if the Rtpipe time-out value is very long.
    9. The contents of MODNAME is the SVT section of the x'3E'
       event record is incorrect when an RTPIPE is requested from
       the client.
    ( For problems #1 - #6 in CEX R220 see APAR PM77548, and
      for problem #7 in CEX 220 see APAR PM79725 )

Problem conclusion

  • The following changes have been made for the above issues:
    1.Changes made to write an event record when a command to
    drain/resume a datastore has been issued, or the
    datastore has been "autoresumed".
    2.Changes to the QUERY command made to report the number of
    of outstanding responses for a datastore or list of
    datastores.
    See the technote 'Query Datastore Outstanding Sessions':
     (http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21622627)
    3.Changes made to allow a specified TCP/IP port number to
    be used by IMS Connect Extensions when issuing Type 1
    commands to a IMS Connect region.
    See the technote 'SHELL Batch Command and ICON_CONTROL
    PORT Control Option':
     (http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21624191)
    4.Corrected data sent to Operations Console GUI client.
    5.Added additional latch to allow the CEX API server to
    reduce the amount of time it holds the Asynchronous buffer
    latch while moving event records to the buffer
    6.To be consistent with the rest of the report the PROC= is
    changed to contain a value of NONE when OMCTLPFG does not
    have an flag bits set 'on'.
    Support for new flag bit setting is also added.
    7. Removed the trace code from CEXEXRTR routine TRCDATA.
    8.A change has been made to detect Resume Tpipe requests for a
    a drained datastore and reduce the time-out value foran
    acknowledge to the lowest possible value. This causes the
    Resume Tpipe to time-out. A well behaved ICON client will
    re-issue the Resume Tpipe which will then be routed to an
    active datastore if one exists.
    9.MODNAME is not a valid consideration for an RTPIPE operation.
    Changed code to zero MODNAME field in the event record when
    the operation is RTPIPE.
