LOCKTIMEWTO—Lock Timer Message Wait Value

LOCKTIMEWTO=nnnnnn specifies the number of seconds (default 30) to wait before issuing messages that the process is waiting for a lock. A value of LOCKTIMEWTO=0 specifies that no warning message will be issued.

The lock controlled by LOCKTIMEWTO is used internally by tableBASE to maintain table integrity in the TSR. It is unrelated to the table ENQUEUE that occurs when a table is opened for write (OW).

When applicable, messages are generated to report that some processing has been blocked.

This option applies to this region’s users, regardless of which TSR they access.

This option can be specified for all tableBASE interfaces except the VTS interface.
