In-memory Tables in cobol

Postby Sonam Bhatia » Fri Jan 06, 2012 7:30 am

Hi ,

I have a Cobol program that has internal tables used for processing large amount of data.This has increased the processing time considerably. The alternatives are to use DB2 tables / in-memory tables. I have been looking around for info on in-memory tables in Mainframes ,how are they created, accessed , read etc.. using Cobol or any other way.
Please help!

Thank you .

Hello and welcome to the forum,

To your understanding, what is the difference between an "internal" table and an "in-memory" table.

What do you mean by "processing tme"? Wall-time or cpu time or something else?

If you clearly describe the process, someone may have a suggestion.
Hope this helps,
