The following tables give an overview of the number of address spaces, processes, and threads used by z/OS® Explorer. More details on the numbers presented here can be found in the next sections:
Table 1 gives a general overview of the key resources used by the z/OS Explorer started tasks. These resources are allocated only once. They are shared among all z/OS Explorer clients.
|Started task||Address spaces||Processes||Threads|
|RSEDx||(a) 2 + 2||2 + 3||3 + 15|
Note: (a) There are two APF authorized address spaces and at least 1 RSE thread pool, which consists of two address spaces. Refer to Address space count to determine the actual number of RSE thread pool address spaces.
Table 2 gives a general overview of the key resources used by requisite software. These resources are allocated for each z/OS Explorer client that invokes the related function.
|Requisite software||Address spaces||Processes||Threads|
|Interactive ISPF Gateway||1||1||2|
|Legacy ISPF Gateway||1||2||4|
Table 3 gives a general overview of the key resources used by each z/OS Explorer client when executing the specified function. Non-numeric values, such as ISPF, are a reference to the corresponding value in Table 2.
|User action||Address spaces
User ID RSEDx JMON
|Timer for idle timeout||-||-||-||1||-|
|Open data set||ISPF||ISPF||ISPF||1||-|
|z/OS UNIX shell||1||1||1||6||-|
Note: ISPF can be substituted by APPC.
