This seems like normal behavior to me. As long as the first job is running, the enq is held. Once the job ends, the enqueue is released. As of z/OS 2.2(?) there is a "enque demotion" that will reduce the enque to shr once the need for old is removed. I am sorry I don't have time to look up the

ITYM ECS. (Enahnced Catalog Sharing). ECS is specific to catalogs and uses a structure for inter-image communication. RLS uses a local address space (SMSVSAM) for local communication AND a structure for inter-image communication. Both are performance related. IMO, RLS is more appropriate for
