The governor interrupt

Your site can set database resource limits on queries or procedures that you run.

If your query or procedure exceeds a time limit or retrieves more rows from the database than the limit set by your site, processing is interrupted. A panel is displayed that lets you specify whether you want to continue or cancel the query or procedure. In TSO, the elapsed CPU time is shown in seconds.

You can cancel or continue with or without prompting. However, if you continue, the query or procedure can still be canceled by the QMF governor.

The governor interrupt display comes from the QMF for TSO/CICS governor. If your site uses a different governor facility, your choices might be different. Your QMF administrator can provide more information on the limits set by your site.
