Workload management

Unlike traditional z/OS® applications, Developer for z/OS is not a monolithic application that can be identified easily to Workload Manager (WLM). Developer for z/OS consists of several components that interact to give the client access to the host system services and data. To plan your WLM configuration, see "WLM considerations" in the Host Configuration Reference.

Note: Developer for z/OS consists of multiple tasks that communicate with each other and the client. These tasks use various timers to detect communication loss with their partners. Timeout issues can arise (due to lack of CPU time during the timeout window) on systems with a heavy CPU load or incorrect Workload Management (WLM) settings for Developer for z/OS.
