Resolution

At one point--during the case exchanges between us and customer--our NetMaster L2 Support noticed that NetMaster had lots
of TIMERs for VSAM checking
. A NetMaster fix was raised to correct this. These L2 provided steps were sent to customer
:
-

1. Please send PTF SO12510
to customer. Support note: This PTF can be found here:

2. Once they have this applied they can unload the old proc ( on Command Entry ) so that it now picks up the modified version:

UNLOAD PROC=$IAVP02Z   

3.  Make some changes to the /PARMS $NM LSR pools.  Please note that these won't take effect until after a restart--but that
isn't necessary. Change the Max Number of Strings to 255 and some of the buffer pool allocations like below--PF06 to Action
and PF03 to
File:

U  $NM LSRPOOL       VSAM LSR Pool Specifications
Max Number of Strings ..... 255
2K=200 4K=200 4.5K=50 8K=200 10K=20 16K=40 28K=6

Customer later confirmed that the steps resolved problem.
