CICS - COLD start

Postby koshal_86 » Tue Aug 07, 2012 4:55 pm

Few of the CICS regions in the non-Production environment are daily bouncing (COLD start) and few are weekly bouncing (COLD start) CICS regions. I am taling about the AOR's.
How can one identify if they are daily or weekly bouncing from the SIP table??
Currently, I identify it from SPOOL (running jobs).

Appreciate your response.

As far as I know, the only way to tell when CICS jobs are brought down or up is by looking at your site job scheduler or spool job output. There is nothing within CICS to indicate that a particular region is started once a day, one a week, once an IPL, or what. Nor is there anything within CICS to cause a system to "bounce" at a particular time of day or week -- that has to be done externally to CICS. You need to consult with your site support group, team leader, or coworkers to get this kind of information since it depends upon how things are done AT YOUR SITE and most likely things are different at every other site in the world running CICS.
