Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure RACF Access Monitor         *
    *                 exploiting the advanced selection criteria   *
    *                 with the option 'ID Present in current RACF  *
    *                 DB' checked to generate the 'Access' and     *
    *                 'Compare' reports in interactive mode (AM.1  *
    *                 and AM.2 options).                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The zSecure RACF Access Monitor         *
    *                      consumes too much CPU time while        *
    *                      processing the 'Access' and 'Compare'   *
    *                      reports in interactive mode.            *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When the advanced selection criteria to generate the 'Access'
    and 'Compare' reports is used, and the 'ID Present in current
    RACF DB' option is checked, the zSecure Access Monitor consumes
    too much CPU time during report generation.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Access Monitor has been modified so that the amount of
    CPU time required to process 'Access' and 'Compare' reports in
    interactive mode is reduced.
