Modify the default parameters for operating the VTS Agent, if desired. If the default values are acceptable, or you wish to use the Override feature provided via the TBOPT dataset, no additional work is required in this step.
For parameter descriptions, see tableBASE run-time options. The default values for this product are listed below and are also defined in:
Default VTS parameters
TBOPTGEN VTS, LISTOPTIONS=N, MAXNMTAB=0, MTRETAIN=N, RACF_VTS=N, STROBE=0, STROBEMETHOD=0, TSR_ALGORITHM=D, TSR_KEY_PROTECT=0, TSR_WARNING_FREQ=1, TSR_WARNING_PCT=85, TSRACCESS=RW, TSRSIZE=10M, ZEROROWS=Y, VTSNAME=DKL1
- In Version 5, the VTS product had its own settings for SWITCHES. Since Version 6, the VTS product does not have its own SWITCHES settings; it inherits the settings from the interface corresponding to the application being run—Batch, IMS, CICS, DB2, etc. The default settings for the SWITCHES in Version 5 VTS was NNNNN, while the default settings for the Batch, IMS, CICS and DB2 interfaces differ from these values (refer to the installation chapters applicable to the interface). Therefore an application from Version 5 that may have not abended when the VTS-TSR was down (due to a 1072 error) may now abend unless the SWITCHES setting is changed from the default value to N. Other differing settings may cause other behavioral differences unless changed from their Version 5 default values.
- Parameters RACF_VTS, TSR_KEY_PROTECT and TSRACCESS can only be modified if you have licensed the optional VTS Gate interface. These parameters are described further under Installing the VTS Gate product.
To make changes to the installation parameters:
- Reassemble DK1V1134 and link-edit into load module DK1VBASE. Use
your.prefix.CNTL(ALV1134)as a model.
