Blog entries are related to the mainframe operating system z/VSE. Ingolf will share news, hints & tips or any topic. The postings on this site are my own and don't necessarily represent IBM's positions, strategies or opinions.
I will travel to the VM Workshop tomorrow and will be on a business trip afterwards. Therefore you will see my next blog entry on July 6. This time the VM Workshop in Binghamton, NY provides z/VSE sessions, too. It is scheduled for June 25 to June 27. You can still register. The registration page is here , and the agenda here . Have a good time.
On June 30. 2015 at midnight (UTC) a leap second will be added to adjust to the earth rotation The last adjustment was in 2012. z/VSE does not have STP (Server Time Protocol) support, and therefore it does not recognize leap seconds. My blog entry on STP holds a link to the IBM Redbook "STP planning guide". The blog entry is here . The relevant Redbook section to leap seconds is "Operating systems with no STP support". There is also a related older technical flash to this topic - here .
