Issue/Introduction

This document describes how the runtime PRIORITY of a task is calculated.

Environment

Release : All supported releases.
Component : CA IDMS

Resolution

It is documented that the runtime priority of a task is calculated by adding the priority on the relevant TASK and the LTERM if there is one.

This can be found under "Specifying a TASK PRIORITY" at TASK Statement Usage and "Specifying a TERMINAL PRIORITY" at LTERM Statement Usage.

However, if there is a PRIORITY attribute on the current user's USER PROFILE, then that is added as well. If the sum of the three items exceeds 240, then 240 is used.

This logic applies to IDMS/Server tasks as well as conventional IDMS processing.
