The next Live Virtual Class (LVC) is scheduled for June 25, 2013.
Title: How to avoid or handle CICS storage availability problems
Abstract: Storage availability problems can often result in CICS or even z/VSE system down conditions, and it is often possible to avoid these situations by ensuring that your system is configured appropriately and is being monitored and reconfigured proactively. However, life is not always that simple, and issues such as performance problems, changes and new bugs can result in outages. Hence it is important that the appropriate diagnostic information is provided so that IBM can deal with the problem as efficiently as possible. For CICS storage availability problems, understanding both CICS and z/VSE GETVIS storage usage is of vital importance, therefore, Partition, Space and System GETVIS usage, optimisation, monitoring and diagnosis are explained as well as the CICS equivalents. The session explains what diagnostic material IBM needs based on the symptoms, the correct commands to be used to monitor storage usage and to force CICS dumps for cases such as SOS, and even includes typical SDAID commands for the various types of GETVIS storage leak. This session is based on experience of dealing with customer PMRs reported against CICS TS for VSE/ESA.
