'Time-of-day environment' in DFSORT(ICETD1-TD4)

Postby rskmfguy » Wed Dec 19, 2012 11:37 am

Hi All,

Can someone please explain about 'time-of-day environment' in DFSORT(ICETD1-TD4)? I browsed to know about it and found the below
statement

'TSO directly invoked DFSORT application is run during a time-of-day for which ICETD1 is activated'

By name ICETD1, does it denote the first 6 hours of day (0 to 6). Or can we set the options specified under ICETD1 to be considered
by explicitly specifying the time?

Eg:
ITEM TD1 TD2

SUN NONE NONE
MON 01-05 08-09


To my knowledge, in the above example the time defaults(TD1 & TD2) will not be considered during Sunday. On Monday the defaults given under TD1 will be
considered from 1 AM to 5 AM. Please correct me if I have got it wrong.

Regards,
rskmfguy

rskmfguy,

Your assumption is correct

ICETD1 can be activated if the day and time of the run (as shown in DFSORT's ICE000I message) is between 01:00 AM and 05:00 AM on MONDAY

ICETD2 can be activated if the day and time of the run (as shown in DFSORT's ICE000I message) is between 08:00 AM and 09:00 AM on MONDAY

You can look at the ICEPRMxx member to see how TD1-4 are defined on your system.

Hi Kolusu,

Thank you for replying!

I ran an icetool job with defaults option and it showed NONE for all the seven days of week. Does it mean 'Time of day environment' has not been activated in our shop?

Yep your shop hasn't activated the Time of day environment. As I mentioned earlier, you can look at ICEPRMxx members in your system parmlib pds and see if it is activated.
