Using TRANCLASS to control workload can improve the performance of asynchronous applications even further. Continue reading Using TRANCLASS with the CICS asynchronous API
This blog shows you how to improve response times with TIMEOUT and NOSUSPEND in asynchronous applications using CICS APIs. Continue reading Improving response times with TIMEOUT and NOSUSPEND in asynchronous applications
Introducing the new FETCH ANY command for the CICS Asynchronous API, which allows parent tasks to fetch the results of any completed child task. Continue reading New FETCH ANY command for the CICS Asynchronous API
Learn about the 'uncaptured wait time' in CICS and how things that can cause 'uncaptured wait time' are decreasing. Continue reading Ever wonder why CICS total suspend time is greater than the sum of the component suspend times?
With the latest 5.4 open beta release, we're making it easy to monitor and track your asynchronously running tasks. Continue reading Transaction tracking and the CICS Asynchronous API
The EXCI is an API that enables applications running outside of CICS in z/OS to link to a CICS application and exchange data. This new enhancement provides a mechanism to exchange large volumes of structured parameter data. Continue reading Support for channels and containers over EXCI – now available in the CICS TS 5.4 open beta
Ever have to follow a complicated chain of CICS tasks through multiple regions to find out why an application is hanging? Or had to work out the origin of a problem task? If so, transaction tracking is what you need! Continue reading Making transaction tracking work for you
Ever wonder how the CICS dynamic storage areas are allocated? This blog examines how the CICS dynamic storage area above the bar is allocated differently from the other dynamic storage areas below the bar. Continue reading CICS dynamic storage area above the bar, it’s a bit different
The aim of this article is to show how you can define a CICS threshold policy such that its is only applied to specific CICS user tasks by exploiting the support for TRANSACTION entry points introduced in CICS TS 5.3. Continue reading CICS Policy – Restricting CICS policies to specific CICS user tasks using transaction entry points
