  6. 6. IMS Version 12Parallel Migration to HALDB (IMS 10 and IMS 11 SPE) APARs: IMS 10 PM06635; IMS 11 PM06639 HD Unload (DFSURGU0) may be run in parallel for different key ranges – Unloads for migration to HALDB – Applies to HIDAM, HDAM and HISAM HD Reload may be run in parallel for different key ranges – Reloads for migration to HALDB Benefits – Migration elapsed time can be reduced significantly – Especially important with logical relationships © 2011 IBM Corporation 6 © 2011 IBM Corporation
  7. 7. IMS Version 12Additional Full Function Database Enhancements Status of randomizers and partition selection exit routines – Displayed when FF database is Opened/Closed via command New DFS2291I diagnostic message for abend U3310 for long lock situation – Provides information about lock resource holder and timeout victim RACF user id is saved in log type 9904 for batch jobs DFS0730I message replaces IMS U0080 abend for open/close DFS0842I message replaces IMS U0080 abend EOV errors DLI Batch jobs wait rather than terminate in the event of a Coupling Facility switch – Eliminates the U3303 abend in this situation HALDB Partition reuse after structure change – Reuse of HALDB partition DB names for non-HALDB databases Improved use of local DMB numbers to stay within 32,767 limit – Reuse of numbers so that a cold start is not required when these numbers reach the maximum Message DFS993I (CSA PSB|DLS PSB|PSBM pool too small) is sent to the system console – Previous releases that did not have a master terminal (e.g. DBCTL) © 2011 IBM Corporation 7 © 2011 IBM Corporation
  8. 8. IMS Version 12 IMS 12 Fast Path Enhancements © 2011 IBM Corporation 8 © 2011 IBM Corporation
  9. 9. IMS Version 12Fast Path 64-bit Enhancements Solution – Fast Path pools are more dynamic • Pools are expanded before buffers are needed • Pools may be compressed • User may set initial size of pools – Additional buffers are moved from ECSA to 64-bit storage • FLD calls • SDEP calls during /ERE and XRF tracking – QUERY POOL command enhancements • Summary statistics available • ALL output reformatted Value – Smarter use of subpools – Reduced ECSA usage © 2011 IBM Corporation 9 © 2011 IBM Corporation
  10. 10. IMS Version 12Fast Path Data Entry Database (DEDB) SecondaryIndex EnablementSolution – Secondary indexes for DEDBs are maintained by IMS • Secondary indexes are full function (HISAM or SHISAM) • Multiple HISAM or SHISAM databases may be used for one index – Supports very large indexes • One index may be built on different fields in a segment – e.g. Multiple telephone number fields – IMS does not build secondary indexes • Tool or user program must be used to create themValue – Access to DEDB via an alternate key – Sequential processing via an alternate key or alternate segment type © 2011 IBM Corporation 10 © 2011 IBM Corporation
  11. 11. IMS Version 12Fast Path Logging EnhancementSolution – FULLSEG option is available on the DBRC • INIT.DB, INIT.DBDS, CHANGE.DB, and CHANGE.DBDS – Option to log entire segments for update calls instead of changed data • Database change log records may be used for replication – EXIT parameter on the DBD and SEGM statements for DEDBs – Option to not log DLET and REPL call “before images ”X’99” • EXIT=NODLET,NOBEFORE.Value – Reduced logging options for replication and disaster recovery © 2011 IBM Corporation 11 © 2011 IBM Corporation
  12. 12. IMS Version 12 ServiceabilityFast Path ServiceabilitySolution – DEDB data sharing enhancement • When an IMS system sends a notify message to its data sharing partner systems, new message DFS0066I is issued for each responding system • Any partner that fails to respond causes the IMS that originally sent the notify message to issue DFS3770W • User may need to cancel the IMS for which there is no DFS0066I messageValue – User can determine which IMS is non-responsive providing a quicker response to a system hang © 2011 IBM Corporation 12 © 2011 IBM Corporation

  23. 23. IMS Version 12Enhanced APPC/OTMA Synchronous Shared QueuesSolution – Provide option to use MVS Cross Coupling Facility (XCF) for communication instead of RRS between Shared Queues Front-End and Back-End systems • IMS is the sync point manager rather than RRS • AOS= parameter specifies new options to use XCF • New AOSLOG= parameter to request 6701 log record – Remove RRS dependency for APPC’s synchronous conversation and OTMA’s Commit Mode 1 (send-then-commit) with sync level of NONE or CONFIRMValue – Improve performance and simplify the syncpoint process by using XCF © 2011 IBM Corporation 23 © 2011 IBM Corporation
  24. 24.

  25. 25. IMS Version 12MQ Message Expiration …– User-Specified Expiry time (message-level) • A value is passed to IMS if an MQ message expiry time (MQMD.Expiry) exists for the message AND the service parameter is set – Value is in 10ths of a second – The residual expiry time for the message is built into the OTMA interface • MQ expiry time minus the time that was spent in the MQ queues IMS WMQ on zOS LINUX Msg is placed on OTMA: Appl places (MQPUT) Msg is processed and IMS bridge Q with sent to OTMA EXPRTIME used MQIIH tran Stays on Stays in MQ for Expiry is now 5.8 second is 6 seconds MQMD.Expiry =60 0.2 sec MQMD.Expiry =100 Transmission Q But is rounded so final Checked at: For 4 sec MQMD.Expiry =60 (6 sec = original 10 - Input Receipt (10 sec) (6 sec) - Msg enqueue minus 4) - Appl GU From the remote application perspective (business as usual): IMS transaction expiration for an OTMA - The MQPUT application will be unaware of an expiry unless it message Is checked in 3 phases: specifies a Report option which can specify - When the message is received (input receiving phase) –MQRO_EXCEPTION (Just the Expiration report) –MQRO_EXCEPTION_WITH_DATA (First 100 bytes of the message) - When it is queued (enqueuing phase) –MQRO_EXCEPTION_WITH_FULL_DATA (All of the message) - When the IMS application issues GU (GU phase) © 2011 IBM Corporation 25 © 2011 IBM Corporation

  31. 31. IMS Version 12Log Archiving for Non-Recoverable Databases SPEs: IMS 10 PM18093; IMS 11 PM19363 Problem addressed by this enhancement – Online backout using archived log stops when it encounters a “missing” log record • Backout is incomplete, other database updates may not be backed out and will be stopped – Batch backout using archived log does not backout updates to non- recoverable database but sets no flags in DBRC to prevent its use Control statement not to archive non-recoverable database log records – Option applies to specified databases SLDS CMPRSNR((dbd1,ddn1)(dbd2,ddn2),...|ALL) Benefit – Eliminates potential database integrity and operational problems © 2011 IBM Corporation 31 © 2011 IBM Corporation
  32. 32. IMS Version 12 UsabilityIMS Scheduling Log Record EnhancementsSolution – Enhanced 07, 56FA and 0A07 log records • New fields to show combined System z Application Assist Processors (zAAP) and System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) specialty engine time • Existing time field now used only for general CP timeValue – For IMS applications that include Java processing, the IMS log records would now indicate how much of the application processing time is on a specialty engine vs. a general processor © 2011 IBM Corporation 32 © 2011 IBM Corporation
