Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z 9.0 - RDz - CARMA Endevor ADD
    ELEMENT User Interface screen takes minutes to display following
    'Add to Endevor' request.
    
    With the RDz v9 client, you can ADD an ELEMENT to Endevor from
    Remote Systems view by right-clicking on .cbl/.pli file
    (program/element) and select 'Add to Endevor' from the context
    menu.  The first time this is done following host/CARMA
    connection, the ADD Element UI screen can take several minutes
    to be displayed.  This response time is related to the number of
    Processor Groups defined in your Endevor environment.  The LIST
    PROCESSOR GROUP Endevor API call below took almost 8 minutes to
    complete due to the number of Processor Groups defined and this
    call needs to complete before ADD Element UI screen is
    displayed.  Subsequent 'ADD' requests done during the same CARMA
    connection, perform very fast (LIST PROCESSOR GROUP call is not
    performed).

    Local Fix:
    
    You should be able to improve the performance on your 'ADD'
    requests by doing a 'Custom - Add Element' request from CARMA
    Repositories view.  To limit the number of records returned by
    Endevor on the LIST PROCESSOR GROUP call, expand the Endevor ENV
    tree all the way down to the 'TYPE' (COBOL/PLI/...) container
    where you want to add element.  Right-click on 'TYPE' container
    and select Custom - Add Element from context menu.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The list of processor groups was always being obtained using
    wildcard characters for the Environment, System and Type
    identifiers.  This approach caused the server code to always
    return the complete list of processor groups.  If the complete
    list included a large number of items, then it took several
    minutes for the request to complete.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The logic was modified to only request a list of processor
    groups if the Environment, System and Type information is known.
    This approach will significantly reduce the number of processor
    groups returned and cached on the client for a particular
    request.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.0.1 Refresh Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
