Been a while since I've done this.  Anyone have a good example of a GRSRNL for 
a Sysplex?  DASD only shared among the Sysplex members.

Thanks Tom.
There are some (old) memory fragments telling me that.
There are a lot of defaults, and a lot of quirks.  IIRC, if you change the name 
of DAE (such as DAESHR, which btw, can only be a max of 28 character), you 
should not include the new name.
There used to be a list of the "quirks" someplace.  Not sure if there was a 
Redbook or a WSC whitepaper/flash.  Like I said, I haven't touched this in 
(dare I say?) decades...  Think the last time I looked at this was when Nicole 
Fagan was GRS

Re: GRSRNL Example [EXTERNAL]

2020-06-29 Thread Norman Hollander
You are correct Paul.  If one member of the Sysplex has a different GRSRNL than 
the other(s),
you will get the 064 wait state.  Whenever I change PARMLIB members, I create a 
new IEASYS
which includes any new members.  That way, if you have a brain fart along the 
way, you can
easily backout.  I'd have to check if the SETGRSRNL command replaces the entire 
list, or appends
the new list.  GRSRNL can have multiple members.  So if you want IBM's (00) and 
yours appended,
you could easily do that.

We don't update our GRSRNL to much.  Last time it was update was in 2016.  
There is one thing you might want to watch.  We ran into an issue one time when 
changes did get made an lpar got IPL before a SET GRSRNL=xx command was issues. 
 The lpar would not IPL, it went into a wait state.  I don't recall how we got 
out of the situation.  We may have backed out the changes and then IPLed.  
After that we may have put the changes back in and did the SET GRSRNL=xx 
command.  It has been a few years.

So now we have a warning at the top of the member indicating this issue could 
happen if the SET GRSRNL=xx command does not get done before an IPL is done.

The two examples given--from Richard Pinion and Jerry Edington--differ quite

more than Richard's. I'm not aware of any problems here, but I have to question

Re: GRSRNL Example

2020-06-29 Thread Norman Hollander
Seems to me that too many extraneous entries could take extra processing to
scan the entries each time, and would take up extra storage.  I think moving to
more generic (or pattern) type of entries may have an advantage.  Definitely 
need
the reserves converted.  Be sure you are only sharing DASD within the Sysplex.
Outside needs special handling (and you would not be able to use Star mode).
There is a lot more reporting (D GRS commands), and GRS monitoring that would
help determine how effective the list is.

Some functions will require a lot of resources, some - not so much.  For

Once you have the list you can look at other options.

I don’t know how other installations perform processor model upgrades, but our 
facilities manager moves in one new processor (CEC) at a time on a weekend 
during an extended maintenance window and activates only the development/QA 
LPAR's on it for at least a week (sometimes more) of "active use" of the new 
model before migrating production LPAR's to the new model.  Remaining CEC's are 
migrated in similar fashion over a period of months.

A "live" regression test, if you will, with only Development/QA LPAR's affected 
by any issues.  I suppose a similar procedure could work for ABO translations,

You should request the Hardware Buckets for microcode updates.  Sometimes, 
there could be a necessary
OS PTF to support/exploit new microcode.  Is there a chance that microcode code 
cause a production problem?

I don’t know how other installations perform processor model upgrades, but our

migrated in similar fashion over a period of months.

A "live" regression test, if you will, with only Development/QA LPAR's affected

Re: ABO Automatic Binary Optimizer

2016-10-14 Thread Norman Hollander on Desertwiz
Back in my banking days, we Sysprogs worked with OPs and APPs to create several 
Jobstreams to
create a group of critical/typical transactions to exercise various 
applications (such as Loan Origination,
ATM, Retail, and Financial, along with File Transfer, Statement Printing, 
etc.).  These were used for any
major changes, like Processor changes, Microcode, DASD changes, Channel 
changes, Printer mods (we had
3900 Duplex printers), OS changes, Middleware changes, and Application changes. 
 These were used as a vehicle
to exercise major components, and were a good indicator that a change appeared 
successful.  If you've ever been
through an Operational Audit, you know that the "process" must be in place for 
changes, and you must routinely
exercise them.  While all changes might not be subjected to this process, a 
robust Change Management process
will determine the need, and will satisfy most auditors.  Satisfying auditors 
is not really a SysProg daily job, but it
is something often required.  If your shop does not need such time consumers, 
consider yourself lucky.  AFAIK, many
industries still require these today.

Coming from the banking and Utilities background, it was required that any 
changes made in a
production environment be tested prior to implementation, and include backout 
capabilities.
While I believe that ABO can very much help old COBOL modules (and even those 
sites that don't
have corresponding source code), it is a change.  Your industry may have 
different compliance
requirements.  From a performance analyst perspective, I'd have much interest 
in the before and
after effect of implanting ABO.  Seems like a good session for SHARE for anyone

The idea of making any kind of last-minute change just before production makes

system before hitting production. I would call it irresponsible to move any 
object-code instance to production without at least some testing, including 
compiled COBOL. 

If I were in charge, OPT would be specified from the get-go. Likewise I would

Re: ABO Automatic Binary Optimizer

2016-10-12 Thread Norman Hollander on Desertwiz
2 Thoughts to consider:

- ABO only runs on z/OS 2.1 and above
- ABO creates a new load module that (IMHO) needs as much Q/A testing as
compiling in the newest compiler.
IIRC, back in the day, going to Enterprise COBOL, there was less
than 8% of COBOL source that needed
to be remediated.  That is, certain COBOL verbs needed to be updated
to new ones.  Things like INSPECT
may have been flagged.  

A good Life Cycle Management tool (did I say Endevor?) could help with an
easy migration to a new compiler.
You could try a minor application and see how difficult in may be...

Nope. Agree 100% with what @Tom says. The ABO is not a source code migration
tool, it is a compiler. Really -- a very weird compiler. Most compilers take
source code in and produce object code out. The ABO is a compiler that takes
object code in and produces object code out. What good is that? It takes
System 370 object code in and produces z13 object code out.

Why is that useful? Because the speed gains in the last several generations
of mainframe are not in clock/cycle speed. System 370 object code does not
run any faster on a z13 than on a z10. The gains are in new instructions.
The same functionality as that S/370 object code expressed in z13 object
code runs a lot faster.

(Please, no quibbles. Many shortcuts and generalizations in the above. If I
had been perfectly precise it would have read like a legal document. The
general points are correct.)

You could use the IWMDEXTR macro to extract the current service definition from 
the WLM couple dataset. See: 
http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSLTBW_2.2.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r2.ieaw200/ieaw200108.htm
There is also an IWMDINST:
http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSLTBW_2.2.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r2.ieaw200/dinst.htm

In principle, it seems that z/OSMF should have a REST API for extracting and 
installing the policy, but I can't find it documented.

It may be also possible to automate driving the ISPF application. 

Note that I haven't personally tried any of these.

Re: Any Gotchas going from V1.13 to V2.2

2016-07-15 Thread Norman Hollander on Desertwiz
zIIPs were available on z9 servers.

>From IBM announcements:
The IBM z Systems Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) is available on the 
IBM z13 processor, IBM zEnterprise (zEnterprise™), System z10, and System z9 
servers. It is designed to help free-up general computing capacity and lower 
overall total cost of computing for select data and transaction processing 
workloads for business intelligence (BI), ERP and CRM, and select network 
encryption workloads on the mainframe.

There are other conversations one could have about migrations.  In our history, 
going from version to version 
of the OS has had hurdles.  Think about MVS/XA to MVS/ESA to OS/390.  But I 
would say those hurdles are
minimal to non-existent today.  Going from a release to a release to z/OS could 
be compared to a maintenance
upgrade.  1.13 to 2.2 is not earth shattering.  Now the discussion of 
exploiting the new features in new releases
may have some effort needed to implement. See Marna Walle's SHARE sessions on 
Migration.  They are the defacto
word on migration (IMHO), and will point to PARMLIB and Exit reviews. 

The other conversation about hardware upgrades could be discussed from a 
monetary point of view.  Certainly new
hardware has costs.  But the benefit of new technology and exploitation might 
lead to needing less expensive resources
than what was previously required.  Examples might be old COBOL programs using 
new compiler technology on new
processors could lead to reducing batch windows.  SMT for zIIP and IFL 
workloads could possibly reduce the number of
specialty engines required.  One could say that the cost of MIPS on newer 
hardware is less than the predecessors.  Certainly
the is a z13 or z13S size that would fit most workloads and wallets.  Value to 
cost is definitely a good topic for discussion.

Your Destination vendor will have appropriate services and tools for your
migration.
Be sure to ask about them. The vendors are there to help make you
successful.

Subject: Replacing CA products

We are planning to replace our CA products with similar products from other
vendors.  Listed below are the replacements we are investigating.   Any
recommendations for different software than what we have identified and/or
user experiences in the following migrations would be appreciated.

We plan to migrate each of these CA products to the listed product:
ACF2 -   IBM RACF (we have had RACF on some LPARs)
CA-1 -   IBM DFSMS RMM
PMO -  IBM LLA
QFETCH -   IBM VLF
Platinum DB2 tools -   IBM DB2 tools

We plan to investigate these candidate products as replacements:
CA-7 -  BMC Control-M, Tivoli Workload Scheduler, ASG Zeke
CA-11 -   Tivoli Workload Scheduler, ASG Zebb Easytrieve -   PSG Z-Writer,
IBM Migration Utility Panvalet/PanAPT -   ISPW, SCLM, RDZ

Thank you,
