         With the introduction of EAV Paging support by CP APAR
    VM66263, output from the System_Page_Utilization_Query API can
    be different from what is documented.  The total_pages and
    pages_in_use output fields in the paging_volume_structure output
    and the total_paging_pages and total_paging_pages_in_use output
    fields in the page_file_structure output can have a length
    greater than the "1-8" length currently documented for the API.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

  • FOR RELEASE ES-CMS-710-BASE :
    PREREQ: NONE
    CO-REQ: NONE
    IF-REQ: UM35475(VM66263-7VMCPR10)
    

Comments

  •      SYSPUQRY HELPMSOC help file has been updated.  The lengths
    for the total_pages and pages-in-use output fields in the
    paging_volume_structure output and the total_paging_pages and
    total_paging_pages_in_use output fields in the
    page_file_structure output have been updated from "1-8" to
    "1-*".
         The updated output lengths for the
    System_Page_Utilization_Query API are documented in z/VM 7.1.0
    Systems Management Application Programming (SC24-6327-01)
    available at the z/VM web site
