The presentation attached below was given by Bill Keene at the 1998 IMS Technical Conference. It describes how IMS availability can be improved through the use of MVS exit routines, IMS exit routines, IMS sysgen options, PSBGEN options, and IMS EXEC parameters. A relatively small investment in implementing these exit routines, options, and parameters can result in sizable reductions in IMS unavailability.

You may copy and modify these examples in any form without payment to IBM, for the purposes of designing and developing application programs conforming to the application programming interface for the z/OS or OS/390 operating system for which these examples are written. Some of these examples have been tested, but many have not. Of those that have been tested, most have not been thoroughly tested under all conditions.
