How does the CICS asynchronous API perform?

Using the CICS asychronous API enables you to make the most of asynchronous processing in a flexible, supported way - but how does the API's RUN TRANSID command compare to pre-existing alternatives such as START? EXEC CICS RUN TRANSID vs. EXEC CICS START When it comes to starting other transactions, the START command is the nearest existing...  Continue reading How does the CICS asynchronous API perform?

Using CICS policy to restrict the number of asynchronous child tasks

The CICS asynchronous API provides a simple, supported way to improve efficiency and reduce response times via asynchronous processing. For system administrators, the API affords a great opportunity to improve performance, and using CICS policy, you can gain even finer control over the the parent and child tasks in your system. CICS policy CICS policy provides a...  Continue reading Using CICS policy to restrict the number of asynchronous child tasks
