Issue/Introduction

When the ARCHIVE JOURNAL process has condensed the CV's journal, if that journal is still 90% (or more) full, then it issues this message as a warning:

IDMS DC111111 REPLY 01 CV 1 JOURNAL 90+% FULL AFTER CONDENSE - CALL DBA BEFORE REPLYING

Is it possible to configure the threshold at which this message appears (i.e. change the 90% to something else)?

Environment

Release : All supported releases.
Component : CA IDMS

Resolution

This threshold can be configured with the SYSIDMS parameter ARCHIVE_JOURNAL_WARNING_PERCENT.

But note the following.

The figure specified is the amount remaining, so if you want the message to appear when the condensed journal is still 80% full, you must specify

ARCHIVE_JOURNAL_WARNING_PERCENT=20

The parameter must be specified in the SYSIDMS ddname of the ARCHIVE JOURNAL job, not the CV.

See Offloading Disk Journal Files and SYSIDMS Parameter Descriptions.

Additional Information

In prior releases of IDMS, this functionality was implemented with optional APARs CS97386, LS88839 and RHDCOPTF bit setting 25.
