Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z Remote search results incomplete
    when using -Dsearch.server.limit.datasets=nnn
    
    The difference can be observed when comparing results against
    TSO Search
    
    Analysis shows the search is canceled due to the rsed.envvars
    parameter -Dsearch.server.limit.datasets not counting datasets
    but actually counts "Number of sequential datasets" + "Number of
    PDS members"
    
    The text in rsed.envvars and Host Configuration Guide
    (SC23-7658-12) is using incorrect z/OS terms and is therefore
    confusing:
    #_RSE_JAVAOPTS="$_RSE_JAVAOPTS -Dsearch.server.limit.datasets=0"
    Limit the resource usage of non-indexed file and text searches.
    The default is 0 (no limit). Uncomment and customize this
    directive to stop a search after the specified number of data
    sets has been scanned.

    01.The search limit key name for scanned files was not matched
       with the term of z/OS.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The RDz server was fixed to use a proper limit key name for
       scanned files; rsed.envvars variable
       search.server.limit.datasets is renamed to
       search.server.limit.scanned_objects.
