IMS region controller parameters

ZDT/IMS functions that access databases invoke the IMS™ region controller as a subtask. You specify the default values for the parameters passed to the IMS region controller when you customize the ZDT/IMS installation options module.

In the ZDT/IMS installation options module customization, you specify defaults for the following options:
  • Whether or not ZDT/IMS functions use Database Recovery Control (DBRC) when they are run in DLI mode.
  • Whether or not ZDT/IMS functions use an Internal Resource Lock Manager (IRLM) when they are run in DLI mode.
  • The 4-byte z/OS® subsystem name assigned to the Internal Resource Lock Manager.
  • Whether or not dynamic backout is to be performed when an IMS pseudo-abend occurs in a ZDT/IMS function running in DLI mode.
  • (If the IMS subsystem is part of a Remote Site Recovery (RSR) complex) the Global Service Group (GSG) name and the Transport Manager Instance (TMI) name that ZDT/IMS functions are to use when they are run in DLI mode.
  • The parallel DL/I option that ZDT/IMS functions are to use when they are run in BMP mode.
  • The number of Fast Path database buffers to be made available in the Common Service Area (CSA) when a Fast Path region is activated.
  • The number of additional page-fixed buffers to be made available to a Fast Path region if the normal allotment is used.
  • The maximum number of locks that a ZDT/IMS function is allowed to hold at one time.

In the ZDT/IMS installation options module customization, you also specify whether or not the user can override the values that you specify for the above options.
