Customizing for CEA
Common event adapter (CEA) is a component of the BCP that provides the ability to deliver z/OS® events to C-language clients, such as the z/OS CIM server. A CEA address space is started automatically during initialization of every z/OS system. Additionally, CEA provides instrumentation for various services such as z/OSMF Incident Log and BCPii to run in full function mode or to provide other instrumentation services.
- Full function mode. In this mode, both internal z/OS components and clients such as CIM providers can use CEA indication functions.
- Minimum mode. In this mode, only internal z/OS components can use CEA indication functions.
